Research in Medical Education (RIME) Conferences

Due to the growing interest of educators and researchers in promoting and sharing innovations in medical education, the Research and Innovations in Medical Education (RIME) Conferences are held monthly between October and June. Building on the long standing tradition of interdisciplinary collaboration at the University, this workshop, sponsored by the Pritzker School of Medicine, brings together a diverse group of educators and researchers across the University of Chicago's clinical, basic science, and social science departments to share and discuss interesting ongoing innovations and approaches to medical education. Workshops feature both institutional and external educators and researchers whose work is focused on improvements and methods in medical education, including such topics as curriculum development or implementation, competency assessment and evaluation, simulation or observation studies, and policy or ethical dilemmas in medical training.

RIME Conferences are scheduled for the first Thursday of every month from October to June from 12:15pm-1pm. Individuals interested in presenting work should contact Jeanne Farnan, MD, MHPE, or Shannon Martin, MD, MS.
