Welcome

If you haven’t been to an ICIM meeting before, you’re in for a treat! With a supportive family atmosphere, the best food in the industry, and colleagues passionate about science and healing, our learning environment is transformative. Our next meeting is April 18-22 in Cincinnati: “What Works in Clinical Medicine.”

Program Chair Carol Petersen RPh writes, “We are emphasizing the practical. It’s the time for debate, clinical pearls, and comaraderie. Carry home goodies and nuggets for your practice from masters. Nourish yourself with food and fun and time with your colleagues.”

For this meeting, we are applying for CME credit throughAAFP’s Blended Learning model
This means more time will be devoted to Q&A, group problem solving, and helping you make plans to incorporate “What Works” to your practice.

Benefit for Learners
• Incorporates proven approaches of blended and spaced learning (Reduces/spreads out cognitive load over time)
• Increases faculty/learner interaction time during the live part
• Makes most of time spent with faculty and co-learners
• Greater flexibility – at their own pace and on their own time
• Encourage learners to drive their own education

“The challenge for educators in every discipline is for them to transition from being dispensers of facts to being architects of learning activities. Critical in this process is designing experiences that facilitate students developing into active learners rather than passive receptacles of information.” – Pierce, 2012
