Abstract Body: Background: Ongoing evaluation of medical school programs and use of evaluation data for program improvement is required by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME) to maintain accreditation in the United States. Our School of Medicine has developed a system of using evaluation data to improve curricula by conducting “deep dives” and debriefs with course directors in order to apply student feedback in an encouraging manner. When course directors are experimenting with new curricular elements, or when we identify courses with deeper or more complex refinements needs, we conduct evaluation “deep dives” by asking additional targeted questions, applying the “keep-stop-start” system, and conducting focus groups with students for additional candid feedback. The results are shared with course directors during a course debrief meeting in order to review successes and challenges, and develop a plan for improvement for the next academic year. This process allows our institution to continuously work to improve our M.D. program, while also fostering ongoing faculty development for curricular advancement. This workshop is intended for all who wish to learn and share ideas about effective evaluation strategies, and offers specific tools for ongoing curricular improvement. Objectives: At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: 1) Explain how effective course evaluation in Undergraduate Medical Education with shared ownership between course staff, faculty and evaluators can be an effective motivator for faculty and can drive meaningful and impactful ongoing quality improvement efforts 2) Describe three different evaluation strategies and how they can be incorporated into your school’s evaluation plan 3) Discuss effective evaluation strategies for debriefing key stakeholders Methods: The workshop will be interactive and will ask participants to reflect on their own evaluation process and identify at least one strategy for advancing or improving processes at their home institution. - Introduction and evaluation history in undergraduate medical education (10mns) Activity #1: Share your role and strengths/challenges in the evaluation process at your institution (20mns) - Describe general and specific methods to address evaluation strategies, including “keep-stop-start” and deep dives (20mns) - Review the full debriefing process by which evaluation results are disseminated to and reviewed by key stakeholders, including faculty and administration (15mns) Activity #2: Identify three strategies that might apply to your institution for improving your continuous quality improvement cycle. Describe how they might be incorporated into your current evaluation process (20mns) - Summary of outcomes and closing remarks revisiting the workshop objectives (5mns)
