Social recap from ACGME 2020
By Tony Vlismas, Director of Marketing
We left Toronto in a snowstorm, but arrived in San Diego with the sun, as we joined over 4,000 members of the GME community at this year’s ACGME Education Conference to discuss, share, and inform on the latest in med ed.
We met so many great people, but also learned a lot at the various sessions. Here’s a roundup of our favourite socials from our marketing team:
Great presentation by Dr. Owen Garrick, CEO of @BridgeClinical that shows thru an exp in Oakland, black doctors could reduce the black-white male gap in cardiovascular mortality by 19% #ACGME2020 #DiversityandInclusion Answering the question, #diversity does matter in #health.— ʎuoʇ (@iknowtony) February 28, 2020
Learning from @dyrbye at the @acgme conference has been a great reminder that regardless of the field, self-care and well being is so important. How can anyone expect other people to take care of themselves if we, as leaders, aren’t doing it for ourselves? #ACGME2020 pic.twitter.com/3lW4zDAyUx— Becka Borody (@beckaborody) February 28, 2020
Of course it wouldn’t be a very good social post without at least one bouncing video:
Heading for coffee at #ACGME between sessions? Make sure to stop by the Altus booth at the Marriott Exhibit Hall and say hi, tell us what you’ve learned so far, and about your selection process! @acgme #MedEd pic.twitter.com/o6P5b02nBb— Altus Assessments (@altusinc) February 28, 2020
When reviewing medical applications @dyrbye sees that all students are great test-takers, so what is their “and”? The things they find meaning in, and how they relax. Great talk about avoiding #physician and #residency burnout #AgainstClinicianBurnout #acgme2020 #MedEd— Altus Assessments (@altusinc) February 28, 2020
Mark Twain famously said, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies, and statistics.” This #ACGME2020 panel led by Dr. Lalena Yarris explores how evidence-based survey design can quell that thinking.— ʎuoʇ (@iknowtony) February 28, 2020
There was an amazing, touching, and very inspirational fireside chat with Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, who’s accolades include being a proud immigrant, a mom, paediatrician, public health advocate, author, and the whistleblower who widely blew open the entire Flint water crisis.
“It was about people and community. That’s what science is supposed to be about—not an academic exercise for the ivory tower, or racking up publications, grants, and offers of tenure.“ -Dr. Mona @MonaHannaA providing a playbook for inspiration at #ACGME2020— ʎuoʇ (@iknowtony) February 29, 2020
“I was told that ‘This is not your job, stay in your lane.’ Except that social justice is all of our job” – @MonaHannaA so inspired and so privileged that I got to be at #ACGME2020 to hear it. #badasswoman— Becka Borody (@beckaborody) February 29, 2020
We were at ACGME to help program directors select better candidates more effectively in the UME to GME transition
We are developing an innovative selection tool exclusively for GME that addresses your need to screen large numbers of applicants while gaining insight into their professionalism, personal traits and program fit.
We want to hear from you!
