Guest Presenters to Be Featured at Medical Education Event Monday, April 25

The Office of Medical Education in the College of Medicine will host a Celebration of Medical Education the afternoon of Monday, April 25. The event will be held live, at various locations beginning with Watanakunakorn Auditorium, as well as via Zoom.

The College of Medicine welcomes two visiting presenters for this event: Larry Hurtubise, Ph.D. (ABD) (above, left), a curriculum and instruction specialist from The Ohio State University; and Gustavo Patino, M.D., Ph.D, (above, right), an associate professor from Oakland University’s William Beaumont School of Medicine, located near Detroit.

Mr. Hurtubise will present a plenary session on Universal Design for Learning and facilitate a later workshop on active learning. Dr. Patino will conduct a workshop on writing effective assessment items.

Four faculty recipients of the COM Education Innovation Award – Amy Lee, M.D., M.P.H., M.B.A.; Kris Baughman, Ph.D.; Janice McDaniel, M.D.; and Austin Fredrickson, M.D. – will present on their projects in the College of Medicine curriculum. An in-person and virtual digital poster session is planned for the late afternoon, and Cynthia Ledford, M.D., and Susan Nofziger, M.D., will present a plenary session on clinical coaching and narrative assessments in the early evening.

All members of the NEOMED community are welcome to join our College of Medicine faculty and staff, whether in person or via Zoom.
