AAMC Call for Proposals for Two Ignite-style Sessions



5841 Cedar Lake Rd., Suite 204
Minneapolis, MN 55416
(952) 545-6724

From the President of the AUPN

The AAMC is seeking proposals for two Ignite-style sessions at the 2020 AAMC Councils Co-located Spring Meeting. These sessions will be held Friday, March 13, 2020 from 9:45-11 a.m., and 1:15-2:30 p.m. in San Diego. 

The 2020 spring meeting will bring together the Council of Deans (COD), the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems (COTH), and CFAS for the first time, providing a unique forum to promote and learn about collaborative leadership approaches that occur daily at AAMC member institutions. Only members of the COD, COTH, and CFAS are eligible to present at the Ignite-style sessions on March 13.

The AAMC is seeking Ignite-style presentation proposals in two categories. Each category will feature six presenters, and each presenter will have the podium for four minutes with a maximum of two slides (if any).

  • Leadership Challenge Breakthroughs: Individuals will present on an interesting structural, relational, or environmental challenge they have experienced among the leadership roles represented by each council and identify the opportunities and solutions hiding within the challenge. Presenters should either propose a provocative approach to a universal challenge or focus on a specific example from their institution and how they managed the situation collaboratively.
  • Leadership Competencies and Structures for the Future: Individuals will present on novel approaches to individual and enterprise-wide leadership competencies and structures to support the future environment of academic medicine. Presenters will be asked to focus on constructive approaches undertaken by their institutions (e.g., new structures for leadership, leadership programs, or systems) or innovative ideas that have not yet been implemented but demonstrate significant value for the future.

Proposals should address an audience of medical school deans, teaching hospital and health system CEOs, and faculty and academic society leaders. While we can accommodate only one presenter per proposal, presenters are encouraged to collaborate with their institution’s COD, COTH, and CFAS representatives in developing the proposal, and if accepted, the presentation.

Priority will be given to proposals that are relevant to the category as described, offer transferable lessons for other institutions, and represent innovative thinking and approaches.

Please read the guidelines before submitting. Proposals should be submitted by Jan. 10, 2020 at Noon ET: https://surveys.aamc.org/se/7C7E87CB5AFF7B5C
