View Agenda

View Flyer


The goal of Health Professions Education is to develop learners who are equipped to improve health in the modern health care ecosystem. In order to meet this goal, it is fundamental that educators use data to constantly improve their educational programs and measure their effectiveness. Examples of data include clinical data, population health data, and educational data. This conference will focus on sharing strategies for gathering high-quality educational data, interpreting data, using data to drive improvement, and linking education to clinical and population outcomes.   Sessions will be highly interactive and emphasize implementable strategies. View Agenda
