Related Activities

  • AAMC/SACME Harrison Survey
    SACME conducts a survey of its members every year (formerly every 2 years) and shares findings with the membership. 

  • Virtual Journal Club
    SACME's Virtual Journal Club provides a discussion forum for SACME research-minded colleagues, as well as those of us who read literature to inform our practice in CPD design, assessment or evaluation of outcomes, faculty development, or any other of the many domains relevant to our field. As we considered the diversity of academic experience and interest of our members, we decided to focus our approach less on the critique of the journal article(s) and more on the creation of a series of transformational discussions around the value of available evidence to our practice.

  • Community of Practice
    SACME Community of Practice for using social learning principles in CME/CPD. Come engage with colleagues and share your perceptions of how physicians learn in practice!
