The purpose of the Medical Education Innovation Symposium is to examine a specific medical education innovation from a variety of perspectives. Symposia may feature a problem and describe different innovative techniques or tools to address the problem, or present alternative teaching methods to what is currently in place. This is an ideal opportunity for a group of medical educational innovators with a common interest, to integrate, synthesize and showcase research findings around a highlighted innovation. It is also an ideal forum to present and get feedback on innovation in progress. Submissions are encouraged from educational innovators affiliated with different institutions sharing a common interest, or from innovators at a single institution wishing to profile a particular stream in medical education research.
