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 Abstract 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

Visual abstract poster presentations will be held virtually on May 26 and 27, 2021 from 6-7 p.m. Visual abstract 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 visual abstracts as a PDF to Dr. Jonathan Wisco (jjwisco@bu.edu) by 5 pm on May 17, 2021. Visual abstracts will be compiled and available for preview by May 24, 2021.


All questions should be addressed to Dr. Jonathan Wisco.
