CLIME & WISH Workshop with David Cook, MD

Topic: Simulation-Based Assessment

Presented by: David A. Cook, MD, MHPE
Ptofessor of Medical Education, Mayo Clinic - Rochester
Professor of Medicine, Mayo Clinic - Rochester

Space is limited - please RSVP!

Co-sponsored by WWAMI Institute for Simulation in Healthcare (WISH)

This workshop will present a comprehensive approach to developing a rigorous validity argument for simulation-based educational assessments. Using practical cases and examples from published research Dr. Cook will illustrate how to structure the validity argument using five sources of evidence: content, response process, internal structure, relations to other variables, and consequences. Participants will discuss the critical relationship between reliability and validity, and review various methods to measure reliability. They will also how to discuss choose among various potential outcomes when planning a course evaluation or research study.

At the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Define validity, and explain why validity applies to the interpretation of an instrument’s scores (not the instrument itself)
  2. Describe shortcomings in published evidence for simulation-based assessment
  3. Use five sources of validity evidence to structure a coherent validity argument
  4. Contrast different methods for measuring the reliability of instrument scores, and discuss the contribution of reliability to validity
  5. Outline an 8-step approach to assessment validation

CLIME Workshop with Larry Gruppen, PhD

Title: Clinical Reasoning: How to Define, Measure, and Study a Slippery but Critical Construct

Presented by: Larry Gruppen, PhD
Professor of Learning Health Sciences
Director of the Master of Health Professions Education Program

Space is limited - please RSVP!

A light breakfast, coffee, and tea will be available starting at 8:45am. The workshop will begin promptly at 9am so give yourself extra time to settle in.

In this workshop, participants will examine their own, personal definitions of clinical reasoning, examine alternatives, and review the breadth of the construct in relationship to research and teaching.  We will work towards a comprehensive model of clinical reasoning, but also consider the possibilities that greater distinctions need to be made to understand its complexity.

 Participants will be able to:

  • Describe their own definition of clinical reasoning
  • Describe how that definition differs from the definitions of others
  • Analyze the aspects of cognition and context that play a role in clinical reasoning
  • Connect relevant assessment methods to various aspects of clinical reasoning

“Being a Resilient Leader” Interactive Workshop

Would you like to increase your day-to-day effectiveness, reduce stress, and inspire optimism in yourself and others? If so, the AAMC has a unique course for you!

Up to half of health care professionals today suffer from burnout, which harms well-being, work performance, and patient safety. A recent survey, in fact, revealed that 60 percent of today’s physicians would quit if they could. While most leaders recognize the harmful impact of worry and burnout, they don’t know how to address it.

The AAMC has designed a dynamic workshop to help academic medical staff and faculty meet the challenges that are causing a rise in anxiety, stress, and burnout, according to reports from faculty, administrators, and staff.

Being a Resilient Leader, an interactive two-day workshop, will give you the tools to meet your professional challenges and thrive in today's dynamic health care environment.


When: Thursday, September 24, 2015 - Friday, September 25, 2015
