AAIM Education Committee

The AAIM Education Committee is charged to discuss and manage issues related to the accreditation of residency and fellowship training, standards for medical student education, milestones and enstrustable professional activities in UME and GME, develop programs and resources for members to manage these issues, and consider alternative approaches to training. Works in collaboration with the Innovation Center and the AAIM Research Committee to recommends studies that can be performed to address key educational issues.

Current AAIM Education Committee projects (as of June, 2018):

  • The Ambulatory Work Group recently conducted a needs assessment seeking to understand recruitment and retention of ambulatory teaching faculty. Members submitted a manuscript and workshop for the 2018 SGIM Annual Meeting.  A manuscript seeking to understand engagement strategies and recruitment and retainment challenges facing ambulatory faculty is nearing completion.  The work group anticipates solidifying the manuscript by the end of July 2018 and will submit this for AAIM Perspectives consideration. 
  • A work group is evaluating submissions from its solicitation for faculty development to improve written qualitative feedback.
  • Two committee members chair the AAIM Competency-Based Education and Training Task Force. The task force is finalizing solicitation requests and IRB approval to conduct qualitative research to understand implementation of competency-based education and training as related to UME – GME transition.
