CALL FOR EXHIBITS
This is your opportunity to reach key decision makers in major purchases of surgical equipment, medications, and educational materials, including chiefs of surgery, directors of surgical residency and clerkship programs and surgical residents. More details will be available in early fall.
The Association for Surgical Education is committed to involvement of surgical residents and medical students in the Association’s activities, particularly the annual meeting. ASE Members, check back later for more details.
The Association for Surgical Education has standardized slides created for committees to use when preparing workshops at our annual meetings. Download the template here.
Selected papers from the meeting are submitted to The American Journal of Surgery, the official journal of the Association for Surgical Education.
If you are interested in submitting a paper to the Association of Program Directors in Surgery, please go to their website for submission instructions: www.apds.org .
At lunch during the joint day (Thursday, April 10, 2014) of the 2014 Surgical Education Week, the ASE Curriculum Committee will again sponsor a forum for the brief presentation of creative ideas which are educationally sound, but which may not have undergone rigorous evaluation of efficacy. We are seeking presentations not only about creative teaching methods but also about faculty development, information technology and assessment and evaluation.
The idea is to have members share creative ideas that have worked for them. As the forum will be at the "unassigned" lunch hour, a box-lunch will be provided at a nominal cost. The Committee calls this forum the THINKING OUT OF THE BOX LUNCH.
We are now soliciting ideas for presentation at the 11th annual rendition. A special abstract form for this forum is attached. We request abstract submissions by December 15, 2013 in order to gauge the amount of interest and give all authors an opportunity to prepare. Abstracts accepted will be presented from the podium during lunch. PowerPoint slides may be presented but will need to be submitted well in advance.
A subcommittee of the Curriculum Committee will review submitted abstracts. Within our time constraints, we will accept as many submissions as possible. Presenters will be expected to produce a fact sheet for their presentation so that each attendee may have further references or contacts should they wish to adopt the idea. Please note the request to include your presentation on the members-only area of our web site after the meeting. On behalf of the Curriculum Committee, we look forward to your submission of creative teaching methods.
