Welcome and Overview
Welcome from the Academies Collaborative (AC) Chair Wendy Hobson-Rohrer, MD, MSPH. Introduction of current and new AC Steering Committee members, time for participant introductions.
Topic I: Panel discussion. Membership Structure: what and why
Academies across the country have different types of membership structures, for example, honorary, multi-level, or required applications for membership with renewal. We will have a discussion and debate with representatives from different institutions with different membership structures. This session will benefit participants who wish to understand the pros and cons to different ways of forming and maintaining membership, those who are considering changing their membership structure and requirements, as well as participants from new or newly-forming Academies who would like information to decide what is best for their group. Resources such as examples of membership announcements, applications, and renewal forms will be provided on the AC website.
Topic II: How do we assess Academy impact?
Academies provide many programs and services to their members, but how do they demonstrate the values they add to their institution? We address three questions in this session: (a) how to address interests of key stakeholders (dean, faculty, academy director, students, etc); (b) how to link evaluation to Academy goals and mission; and (c) how to assess the institution’s culture for education.
In the large group we will identify 4-5 key areas of shared interest for evaluation, and work in small groups to discuss evaluation plans for each area, and debrief in the large group. We will share any existing resources and facilitate collaboration plans for attendees who wish to conduct joint evaluations.
Presentation by Amy Sullivan, Charting our progress: Evaluating Academy impact
