Get involved with our Learner Faculty Poster and Oral Presentation Co-Evaluation Opportunity at CCME 2020 in Vancouver! 

We hope that we will see many of you at the upcoming Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME 2020) in Vancouver! If you are attending CCME 2020 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 Vancouver, April 18-21, 2020. 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! If you are interested in this opportunity, please click the link below to sign up as a faculty mentor or learner and CAME Association Manager Mary Cunningham will be happy to link you with another volunteer so that you can coordinate your schedules in advance of, or at the conference.

Moderators and Facilitators - CCME 2020 in Vancouver!

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.

On behalf of the CAME Research Awards Committee we would like to offer our sincere appreciation and gratitude to everyone who has taken on the role of Moderator or Facilitator at past conferences and hope that you will consider doing so again in Vancouver!

Assessment – Volunteers Required

This year we are once again using an online review tool! In doing so, everyone in the audience has the ability to be an assessor.

Please consider assessing Oral Presentations, Facilitated Poster Session and Dedicated Posters via the CCME 2020 app! To volunteer to be a Moderator or Facilitator at CCME 2020 in Vancouver click here.

You will receive a letter of thanks for completing assessments for your dossier.
