#MedEd Twitter Chat
The Academies Collaborative will be hosting our very own MedEd Twitter Chat on April 18th at 9pm ET. These chats, led by Dr. Gary Beck Dallaghan, are held weekly and transcripts are distributed to the DR ED listserv. These scheduled Twitter discussions often promote lively dialogue and idea sharing. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about other academies and share best practices.
For this chat we will be discussing how Academies of Medical Educators (and their equivalents in hospital systems) structurally support educators. Check out this website for background info: https://www.academiescollaborative.com/
How has membership in your Academy supported your success as an Educator?
What event(s) does your Academy run that engage you as an Educator and/or advance your career?
What is one activity you would want your Academy to do/take on to support your role as an Educator in 2019-2020?
To follow along and add to the discussion during the chat, log in to your Twitter account then search for #mededchat. Select "Latest" from the menu and you will see the responses coming in!
