    Event Overview

    There has been enthusiastic growth in the adoption of technology and even AI as a means of  supporting health care delivery and education. But there have also been significant concerns  and considerations identified. This includes issues of trust, privacy, bias, and other concerns of  equity-seeking communities. To ensure the successful and safe adoption of these technologies  to support care and education there is a need to have open and transparent dialogue about  parameters and utilization policies to guard and guide their utilization and improve health  equity. Experiences using technology and AI across the world are different according to the  contexts in which they are applied and can offer interesting insights and lessons learned for a  global audience. An introductory panel discussion will be followed by interactive knowledge  gathering using small and large group techniques.

    The Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME) invites you to our 2024 Annual Meeting, March 10-13 in San Diego, CA.

    This year’s annual meeting will address the opportunities and challenges of artificial intelligence (AI); how CPD/CE can impact the climate crisis; the influence of power and privilege on academic medicine; and best practices for our organizations and our learners to address complex care needs in under-resourced settings, including migrant, refugee, and displaced communities.

    Through research and best practices sessions learn from CPD/CE colleagues who’ve developed innovative strategies, including interprofessional and team-based education, working in the evolving CPD/CE environment using data driven CPD, and incorporating quality improvement and patient safety.

    We look forward to an interactive, stimulating program that will provide opportunities for professional development, networking, and scholarly interactions.

    Artificial Intelligence: Implications for Scholarship in Health Professions Education

    Wednesday, March 27 from 3:00pm - 4:00pm Central Time

    Free for SACME Members / $30 Non-Members


    Session Overview

    Join us for this interesting and timely session, the third in a series focused on the developing capabilities and questions related to the use and place of artificial intelligence (AI) in medical education, faculty development and scholarship.

    As noted in previous sessions, the growth of AI has many implications for health professions education. Here we will focus on how AI will change scholarship relevant to research on how physicians maintain expertise in practice.  We know the data landscape will change; the specific research methods will change; and the implementation of research findings will change.  What will not change is the imperative to keep up.  How will we?  Our discussion will lean on some core conceptualizations of what it is to do research and scholarship more generally with an understanding that it is not going to be easy. 

    In this session of our virtual journal club, our presenter, Dr. Pusic who has a research role at the ABMS, will lead us in a discussion of AI’s role in scholarship related to expertise maintenance.

    As always, we welcome your thoughts and perspectives.
