IAMSE Spring 2020 Web Seminar Series – Postponed

Evolution and Revolution in Medical Education: Health Systems Sciences

*Update from IAMSE*

All speakers for the remaining three webinars in the Health Systems Sciences series are physicians as well as educators. With the substantial, daily rise in COVID-19 cases, they are all being called upon to perform additional clinical duties, sometimes with little notice. With respect to the patients these speakers may be called to serve and to everyone’s most precious time, we felt it would be best to postpone the Spring Webinar Series until further notice.

We hope and plan to resume the series at a later date once the current crisis has subsided. Our team is working to bring you the conclusion to this programming as quickly as possible, but, more importantly, we hope that our speakers and all other front-line clinicians stay safe and well through this trial. We will bring you more information regarding the series in the coming weeks.


Registration is open to faculty, students and staff.
