The 15th Annual McCahan Education Day has been postponed to a later date. In light of the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee will honor all Abstract submissions when it considers Awards for Best Student Abstract and Best Resident/Fellow Abstract, regardless of whether that student, resident or fellow has graduated by the time of the rescheduled event. Stay tuned for more details about the rescheduled McCahan Education Day.


Abstract Submission for 2020 is now CLOSED!

John McCahan Education Day aims to showcase a wide variety of BUMC educational innovations and research activities.  We invite educators to submit a proposal for a scholarly poster to be displayed during McCahan Education Day.

The poster selection committee is soliciting applications in two major areas: 

  • Education Innovation and Research: These submissions showcase educational innovations and scholarship at BUMC. Such projects may include descriptive projects, or qualitative or quantitative research. Examples include the development, implementation, or evaluation of educational tools, course curricula, simulations or innovative educational collaborations.
  • Education Technology: This category highlights creative uses of interactive educational technology. Appropriate submissions include course or clerkship websites, electronic clinical case simulations, online didactics, computer-based faculty development resources and electronic evaluation instruments

See the Poster Toolbox for information on preparing your poster.

All questions should be addressed to Dr. Yoshiyuki Mochida.
