This year's theme is Resiliency and Relevance in a Time of Change, which lends itself to a broad range of topics that relate to what and how we teach to ensure that our graduates possess the knowledge and behaviors to be resilient in their careers, and maintain relevancy in the healthcare industry. The Annual Meeting Planning Committee has developed a list of special interest below to highlight some of the relevant topics within each area.




Practitioner tools and ideas designed to engage and enhance practitioners and patient community action (e.g. Items that support all components of the field like the ACA, Hospitals, Public Health Systems, etc.)


Pedagogy tools and ideas (methods, techniques, and technologies) designed to engage and enhance student/teacher resilience (e.g. experiential learning) in and outside the classroom


Succession planning, leadership development, and preventing professional burnout
