September 1 @ 9:00 am - September 29 @ 10:00 am

This webinar series is only available for UW affiliated faculty, staff, and students. 

Description of Series: Health profession educators are often called upon to help identify, support, and remediate struggling students. The root causes of student performance deficits are multifaceted and may be due to academic and non-academic factors. Deficiencies are rarely correctable through a simple solution. The Fall 2022 IAMSE (International Association of Medical Science Educators)  Webinar Series will address strategies for identifying and supporting at-risk students and recognizing and breaking down barriers that may limit student success. The series will begin with an overview of methods to identify, intervene with, and remediate struggling students. Follow-up speakers will delve into specific mechanisms that have been employed to support students, including decelerated curriculums and Learning Communities. Additionally, speakers will provide information on the impact of mental health issues on medical school performance and the unique barriers and challenges faced by members of underrepresented communities. Webinars will provide specific strategies for mitigating the effects these factors may play in student success.  

By the end of this series, participants will be better prepared to recognize causes of academic difficulties, know better when to recommend students for more intensive interventions and implement strategies for identifying and breaking down barriers that limit student success.
