The HPEI Educator Conference is intended for faculty, staff, students, residents, fellows, physicians, and providers who are interested in teaching and training in the health professions. The conference features best-practice updates, evidence-based teaching, opportunities for networking with educators, and thoughtful discussions about how we train current and future generations of medical and biomedical professionals. This year’s conference is packed full of great content and will focus on a theme of personal and professional character development – how are we building not just knowledgeable, skilled, competent but also resilient professionals that act with virtuous intent. The conference will include original research and breakout sessions for teachers and clinicians from all areas of medical and biomedical education across the spectrum.
