I can make a comment in follow-up to Sid
Nick Delamere
39:38
I like the notion of community engagement. Q can you elaborate on the community - who’s included?
eweissman
39:46
Sid and I explored that question in detail at a past in-person meeting.
eweissman
40:54
For those who didn't hear, Sid's question focused on equity issues related to in-person vs. virtual interviews in the residence application process.

There is good evidence in primary care that rural and inner city access to care can be improved if medical students from rural and inner city areas are accepted into medical school in greater numbers and trained in rural and inner city areas. Any broad AAMC plans?
Vincent Pellegrini
44:11
My question is with respect to the impact of governance on faculty well-being. Shanafelt tells us all it takes is 10% of faculty time each week spent in things that bring joy to bolster faculty morale and satisfaction. So, I am interested in your thoughts on β€œbest practices” in AHC governance at a time when the clinical enterprise is increasing the dominant force and faculty time devoted to the academic mission is increasingly constrained?
Dr. Charles Day
44:27
In the area of diversity, equity, and inclusion in academic medicine, how do we systematically address the issues of "implicit bias"
Sid
48:39
We are talking abut the SOAP process. These are individuals who did not March.
Sid
50:24
This does not totally address the issue. Some students will still have ":audition" clerkships even of their interview was virtual.
Alice Roberts MD
50:26
Question- raised hand. On research in medical= school. Thx!

We (U of Michigan) started a 'second look' day for applicants who want to visit our campus to attend a day-long program where they learn about our school, programs and community. They have NO contact with our training programs or residents/fellows during this time. The names of those visiting are NOT provided to our programs, so there is little (no?) risk of a decision to visit influencing the rank ordering. The response exceeded our capacity.
Nita Ahuja
56:43
@Scott great idea. Key is to ensure that there truly is no contact allowed either with program directors or residents/faculty.
Steven Angus
57:53
@Alice: I think this issue is only going to get worse as schools move to pass fail and USMLE moves to pass fail..PDs will look for some other way to distinguish among applicants
Nita Ahuja
58:07
keeping track of our queue. Monica, Bob, Vin, Charles and then Mike

If anyone has a questions or comment, pleas raise your hand or put your name in the chat.
Nita Ahuja

Please do keep your questions brief though
Lee Eisner
01:00:02
How can AAMC help shed light and communicate best practices on the changing structure and functioning of biomedical science departments at many medical schools around the country and the impact this is having on biomedical science researchers and educators, their relationship with their chairs and with their institutions?
Sid
01:00:36
We have placed a great new focus on students portfolios in applying for residency. In reality individuals with more personal resources will appear to have "stronger" credentials in applying for residencies because they can take non funded positions.\
eweissman
01:01:46
That's very much the goal of CFAS - Alice, I'd love to talk offline about how to facilitate this conversation with the council generally.
eweissman
01:02:33
This is also an important theme for our Spring meeting.
Tracey Weiler
01:07:39
We have begun a "Pathway Programs and Bridges" PPB SIG to support all of these programs from K-12, summer, undergrad, post-bac, masters, etc.
Monica Baskin (she/her)
01:07:47
I know that the CFAS D&I committee would love to connect with Dr. Young to look into potential best practices we can promote at our academic institutions to support increased diversity.
eweissman
01:08:29
Monica, I wrote a note to put you in touch with Geoff Young already :)
Nita Ahuja
01:09:08
@Vin you are nex
Nita Ahuja
01:10:36
Thank you all for your incredible engagement in this session. Eric and I are taking notes for future work of our group as well as connecting you into AAMC resources. If we don't get to your question, please do email AAMCPresident@aamc.org also
Tracey Weiler
01:10:56
Supporting the needs of PPB programs and faculty is a huge unmet need! We are having our first annual virtual PPB meeting this July 21st. https://sites.google.com/oakland.edu/ppbfirstannualconference/home Email me for more information if you are interested: tweiler@fiu.edu
eweissman
01:15:50
Lots of questions we didn't get to as Nita mentioned - please email David at AAMCPresident@aamc.org - or reach out to me for help getting connected.
eweissman
01:15:57
I'm sorry we couldn't get to every question.
