Topics in Medical Education (TiME)
Symposia & Webinars

The Department of Medical Education provides access to webinars presented by AMEE’s MedEdWorld and the International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) as described below. However, we have often found that we would like to take a step further and provide an opportunity for a rich discussion of the topic and its application at our institution.

To address this need, we created the Topics in Medical Education (TiME) symposia series. Each symposium is based on a topic presented in one of the webinars and has been selected for its relevance to our institution. An individual from our own faculty who has a particular interest in the topic is recruited to share their insights and perspectives during a symposium on the topic. Participants may view the webinar archive prior to attendance at the symposium but this is not required. Clips from the original webinar are referenced during the symposium.

Online Login Instructions

The TiME Symposia are available for participation online as well as in person on campus. To log into a scheduled symposium follow these instructions:

  2. When the DME Adobe Connect Portal opens, participants should select “Enter as a Guest”, type their name and location in the field provided, and click “Enter Room”.
  3. Istallation of a small download may be required.

Online participants will be able to see the slides and view clips from the original webinar and can ask questions by entering them into the chat window.
