From the Editors
The Academy's collaborative 2017 annual meeting was an outstanding success with over 65 participants from around the country meeting in Boston before the AAMC main meeting to discuss various issues related to the development of a communities for excellence in education and health sciences. The program was lead by our 2017 program co- chairs Dr. Janet Corral, from University of Colorado and Dr. Katie Huggett from the University of Vermont school of Medicine.
Our new steering committee members were introduced and include
The morning began with a very energized networking activity where participants met other collaborative members and discussed issues related to their own Academy's activities and shared best practices. Following the networking activity a review of 2 outstanding research projects including Dr. Amy Sullivan, Director of education at Harvard Medical School discussed a pending publication on the Academy's Collaborative Demographics and Development and also shared preliminary data from the survey on wellness initiatives within the academies . This early data suggests while many of our Academies recognized burnout in faculty and/or students as an important issue, not many programs actually had initiatives lead by the Academy addressing this problem. Dr. Janet Corral discussed success in various Academy's and her program at the University of Colorado which won the ASPIRE award for outstanding interprofessional faculty development this past year.
Following these two initial activities consultation sessions were held on a variety of topics with handouts given to the participants now on line on our Academies Collaborative website http://www.academiescollaborative.com/
