Abstract Body: ABSTRACT This interactive, hands-on 90 minute session will introduce participants to the GSA Performance Framework and professional development support toolkit. Participants will learn firsthand how the GSA Performance Framework and tools can benefit their professional development efforts and results for them and their schools. More specifically, participants will put the Framework in motion as they reflect on their current capabilities and explore with fellow participants opportunities to apply the toolkit to enhance their specific professional development practices. PROPOSAL The GSA Professional Development Initiative (PDI) is a collaborative partnership between the AAMC and the GSA community designed to help all GSA professionals: Stay relevant in the dynamic medical school environment. Realize their potential and have a fulfilling career in student affairs. Work collaboratively within and across student affairs at their school. Develop a strong network of collegial support in the student affairs medical school community. This workshop will introduce the GSA Performance Framework which sets the benchmark of performance excellence and distinguishes the importance of student affairs in medical education as a profession. The Performance Framework outlines critical behaviors essential for successful performance and career progression, inclusive of all roles and functions across the GSA community, in alignment with the LCME standards. Additional content will provide an overview of how the tools and resources developed can help professionals grow in their current role. The GSA PDI toolkit is a collection of guides that aim to complement and enhance professional development practices across the GSA community. Participants will participate in a reflective activity utilizing some of the available tools to get them thinking about their professional development. This workshop is of interest to student affairs professionals representing all roles and functions across the GSA community. LEARNING OBJECTIVES At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: Describe the case for professional development and its value to the Student Affairs community. Understand the GSA Performance Framework as a foundational tool and recognize its various components. Raise awareness of the tools that accompany the GSA Performance Framework, their uses, and how to access them.
