This highly interactive workshop will introduce student participants to a framework for medical education professional development and promote major domains including curricular design, pedagogic strategies and education scholarship (Chen et al., 2017; Freret et al., 2017). For these three areas, learners will be provided with a short overview of the theory and best practices in the subject area. Students will then break out into facilitated small groups to work on structured worksheet exercises with flipcharts, followed by an opportunity to report back to the main group with discussion. At the conclusion, key themes that integrate these areas will be summarized, discussed, captured and disseminated as a work product creating a dialogue about needs and building blocks of medical education.
