About Education Symposium

Education Symposium is an annual event that showcases the scholarly work of UCSF students, residents, and faculty. Sponsored by the Academy of Medical Educators and enhanced by visiting scholars, the event is filled with opportunities to see the variety and quality of the work our UCSF colleagues are engaged in throughout the year.

The program features peer-reviewed oral presentations and posters reporting scholarly work in both undergraduate and graduate medical education. Educational workshops focus on developing skills in educational scholarship.

Education Symposium typically takes place in late April of each year, and the Call for Abstracts is distributed in early January. Click here for more information about Education Symposium 2013.
