Chair's Message

Amanda Kost, MD, MEd
2020 Conference Chair

On behalf of the conference committee, I invite you to join a group of innovative and committed colleagues who share your passion for medical student education. As family physicians, we strive to meet the needs of the communities we live in and serve. We are committed to equity, both in our clinical practices and in our educational endeavors.

At this conference, you will be able to engage in dialogue about the most pressing issues in our clinical and educational communities, with a focus on innovative action to promote outcomes that improve the health of all involved, be patients, learners, coordinators, or teachers. The conference offers a space for collaboration across institutions and a forum to learn about the most exciting educational innovations. It serves the important purpose of demonstrating to students the critical role of family medicine within the academic medicine. And finally, it seeks to promote the development of coordinators as they provide the critical infrastructure that permits excellence in family medicine teaching and learning.

To those of you returning to this conference, your dedication and commitment to medical student education is unparalleled. To those attending for the first time this year, a very warm welcome to our community! Through thoughtful engagement and dialogue, a deep dedication to excellence in academic medicine and our communities, we brighten the future for ourselves and for those who will follow in our footsteps.  The work we do makes the world a better place by bending the arc of medicine towards equity and justice, for our patients, our students, and ourselves.
