IntMed residents showcase scholarship strength at GME Leadership Symposium

Gerald Wickham, MA, EdD, UI Health Care GME Director for Strategic Educational Initiatives, called the Internal Medicine Residency Program “a powerhouse of educational research and development.” At Friday’s GME Leadership Symposium, that assessment was on full display in the McCord Club Lounge, a press box above Kinnick Stadium. More than 2 dozen posters were accepted for the session, and 13 of those submissions were from Internal Medicine, mostly residents. Those poster titles, their authors, and presenters are listed at the bottom of the post with links to the posters.

During the session, many of the presenters made themselves available to answer questions from the circulating judges.

The relatively informal nature of the session allowed others to let the work speak for itself while they enjoyed the catered lunch and caught up with colleagues and friends.


After the judging hour concluded, Associate Dean for Graduate Medical Education and Clinical Professor in General Internal Medicine Mark Wilson, MD, began the formal presentation. Wilson recognized the efforts of everyone who plays a role in recruiting and training residents and fellows, especially those who staff the GME office, providing support to dozens of training programs and hundreds of trainees.

Wilson then moved on to delivering the Excellence in Clinical Coaching Awards, reading comments from nominators explicating the faculty members’ strengths as educators. Two of those awards went to Internal Medicine faculty members Andrea Weber, MD, MME, and Jeffrey Wilson, MD.

After the judging, two of the posters received commendations, netting the department funds for future educational innovations.
