MedStar Health—Georgetown University Research Symposium

Georgetown University—MedStar Health Educational Colloquium

Monday, May 10, 2021 thru Wednesday, May 12, 2021

The MedStar Health - Georgetown University Research Symposium and Colloquium for Educators in the Health Professions are open to all members of the research and education community interested in learning more about scholarship at MedStar and Georgetown.

Beginning in 2019, the Research Symposium partnered with the Center for Innovation and Leadership in Education (CENTILE) at the Georgetown University Medical Center to host the Colloquium for Educators in the Health Professions as part of the event. The Colloquium is an opportunity for those across the system focused on education to gather, share ideas and learn together.

This three-day event brings together the MedStar Health and Georgetown University communities to celebrate the great work of our colleagues. It offers the unique opportunity to connect with researchers, educators, residents, executive leaders, and collaborative partners from across the region and our system to build meaningful relationships to further advance the health of our community.

Registration is free for all attendees and the event is open to all the MedStar Health community. Following your registration here, you will receive a separate email with the virtual event instructions and platform link. The platform will allow you to attend any portion of the event.

In this session, we will present these three perspectives and how they work together for funding success. We will also cover different mechanisms and strategies for funding support.
  • Abstracts, Manuscripts, Journals…Oh my!
    Conducting research is only the first step…preparing your scholarship for publication or presentation will follow! This session will provide helpful pearls, as well as identify avoidable pitfalls, in taking your results from “data” to paper, poster, or the presentation screen.
  • Feedback in the Clinical Setting
    This workshop will identify different forms of feedback and approaches to its delivery. Challenges and solutions to providing feedback in the clinical environment will be reviewed using real-world examples. 
  • Privilege and Intersectionality
    This workshop will cover the basic concepts of privilege, with emphasis on how each person has a set of circumstances that bring them privilege, or unearned benefit, in myriad ways.  It will also explore how myriad parts of our identities can merge, overlap, and contradict each other in our day-to-day experience.

  • Clinical Specialty Disrespect
    During the workshop, we aim to 1) increase awareness of the negative impact of specialty disrespect on specialty choice and professional identity formation, 2) empower participants to address it through applying the ACTION microaggressions framework to real-life case examples, 3) invite participants to take the Specialty Respect Pledge, and 4) brainstorm additional ways to improve the culture at GUSOM/MedStar around this issue. 
  • Bias in Clinical Grading
    This workshop examines the impact of bias on grading in clerkships. It talks about core clerkship grading and the illusion of objectivity. It analyzes the cascade effect- how small differences in assessed performance can lead to larger differences in grades and selection for awards. These subjective assessments can lead to differential outcomes in grades, honors society recognition and lead to more difficulties for underrepresented students to compete for competitive residencies.
