Abstract Submission for 2020 is OPEN!

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

2020 Virtual Conference Format

Poster presentations will be held virtually on October 21, 2020 from 6-8 p.m. To accommodate the virtual format, posters will be available for preview by attendees, and attendees will be able to ask questions to poster presenters in breakout rooms. To facilitate preview, presenters should send their posters as a PDF to Dr. Elaine Lee (ellee@bu.edu) by EOB on October 12, 2020. Posters will be compiled and available for preview by October 16, 2020.
