2023 Annual Medical Education Day & 17th Dr. William Webber Lecture

This year’s annual Medical Education Day was held on Friday March 3rd, in-person at the University Golf Club. The theme for the day was Teaching and Assessing Learners with Disabilities.

The event started with VFMP Teacher Certificate Program workshop on Assessment in the Undergraduate Medical Education Program facilitated by Linlea Armstrong, Rita Shah and Nawaaz Nathoo, followed by the Webber Lecture and related workshops.

The 17th William Webber Lecturer was Dr. Lisa Meeks from the University of Michigan Medical School and her talk was on Creating Inclusive Training Programs for Trainees with Disabilities.

After lunch, there were two concurrent workshops as follows:

Debunking Myths; Technical Standards, and Case Law (facilitated by Roslyn Goldner, Janet Mee & Kacey Krenn), and “What do Accommodations look like in the Real World?” (facilitated by Sarah Knitter & Brianna Higgins).

The day ended with a panel discussion and Q & A with panelists Dr. Lisa Meeks, Ms. Janet Mee, Dr. Hannah Carolan, Dr. Sarah Bartlett and Dr. Bonita Sawatzky.

We hope you all enjoyed the day as much as we did. It was great to learn and connect with our frontline teachers. Our faculty development team is working on finalizing the recordings of workshops and we will share these with those who were unable to attend soon!
