If you are attending CCME 2019 you have the opportunity to get involved in our Learner and Faculty Poster and Oral Presentation Co-Evaluation Program!

Are you a student or resident interested in learning how to evaluate posters or oral presentations? Are you a faculty member that is interested in being a mentor to learners? If so, CAME has an upcoming opportunity for you at the Canadian Conference on Medical Education in Niagara Falls, April 13-16, 2019.

This initiative started at CCME 2017 in Winnipeg and was very well received! When you co-evaluate, you have an opportunity to see a peer and/or faculty in action. We will be using a standard tool and this year’s exciting sessions at CCME will be a great opportunity to develop these skills!

As one of the founding partners of CCME, CAME is expected to contribute to the operation of the meeting. Rather than contributing funds, CAME’s role is to oversee the abstract selection process for the pre-conference workshops, conference workshops, orals, posters, and the educational research symposium. In addition, CAME oversees the recruitment of moderators and raters for the oral abstract and poster sessions. As such, the contribution of the CAME membership to the operations of CCME are crucial.
