Go out to Christa Zehle, MD; Cate Nicholas, EdD; Abby Hielscher, PhD; Garth Garrison, MD; and Leigh Ann Holterman, PhD. Their proposal was accepted for the Harvard Macy Institute’s “A Systems Approach to Assessment in Health
Professions Education” which runs from October 17-22, virtually. The course applies systems thinking in designing assessment programs that support the continuous quality improvement of all educational programs across the continuum using multiple
methods such as interactive presentations, case discussions, small group journal clubs, institutional planning groups, selectives on assessment tools and approaches and consultations with faculty experts.
Stanford’s Teaching LGBTQ+ Health course
Stanford’s Teaching LGBTQ+ Health course:
Learners across the health professions demand improved LGBTQ+ health content and additional training opportunities in their schools’ curricula. However, most clinician educators received little, if any, training in LGBTQ+ health when they were
students. This free, online, CME course addresses the gap between expected faculty teaching competency and a lack of previous faculty training. The course is open access to educators across the health professions, as well as other providers, staff,
trainees, and patients. It includes both LGBTQ+ health content and recommendations for teaching this material to trainees in any discipline or clinical department. Educators may freely download portions of the course for use in their daily clinical
teaching or their school’s curriculum. Trailer: http://bit.ly/TeachLGBTQHealth

AAMC Research in Medical Education (RIME) Committee Internship Program Call for self-nominations
Established in 1961, the AAMC Research in Medical Education (RIME) Committee is responsible for the planning, implementation, and evaluation of RIME components of the AAMC Learn Serve Lead (LSL) Annual Meeting, including the editorship of research and review papers for publication as the annual RIME supplement in Academic Medicine.
During 2020, the disproportionate effects of COVID-19 on minority populations and tragic killings of Ahmaud Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd cast health disparities and systemic racism in stark view. Educators nationally, including members of the AAMC RIME planning committee, have become increasingly attentive to disparities in medical education and leadership opportunities for people of color, indigenous populations, and other minoritized groups. To mark RIME's 60th anniversary, the RIME committee, in collaboration with AAMC leadership, seeks to serve as allies operating in solidarity with marginalized groups. Therefore, we invite early career educators or educators who may not be early career but are newly engaged in medical education scholarship; with non-majority backgrounds (race, gender, sexual-orientation, individuals with disabilities as well as other groups who are not in majority numbers in the U.S. and Canada) to work alongside the medical education scholars on the RIME committee to gain access to and experience with the academic peer-review and editorial process. If this opportunity interests you, please submit the listed documents to Nesha Brown by October 31, 2021 at email@example.com
