The New York University School of Medicine and the Consortium of Accelerated Medical Pathway Programs recently held a symposium on July 31 to discuss the state of educating future medical experts.
More than 100 medical experts participated in the July 31 event, in which they discussed ways for those teaching at medical schools to get through to their students, track how those students are doing in their programs and help those students make bigger contributions to medicine in their educations, whether they are undergraduate or graduate students, a NYU School of Medicine release said.
The NYU School of Medicine, the Association of American Medical Colleges, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, the American Medical Association, the National Resident Matching Program and other schools nationally had representatives give speeches at the event.
During the symposium, those in attendance spoke about how to put into place programs that students could finish faster and how that might affect the medical field. They also spoke about how allowing medical students to be creative and create their own roads to graduation might affect the medical field.
