The 2018 GRIPE Meeting is just around the corner, and we would like you to get to know some of our keynote speakers! We have two plenary speakers this year, and we hope you enjoy their presentations.

Bonnie Miller: Transforming Medical Education: Curricular Innovation at Vanderbilt University [Vanderbilt University]

This session will review the rationale for the major curricular revisions that are occurring at many US medical schools, and will outline the strategies undertaken at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine to address the drivers for change. The session will also present lessons learned from implementing major program reforms and will provide early outcomes information.

As a result of attending this session, learners will be able to:

  1. Describe the major drivers for curricular change in medical education.
  2. Discuss strategies that might be used in addressing these drivers, including changes in teaching approaches and changes in curricular structures.
  3. Discuss challenges that can be encountered in undertaking major change projects, how they can be anticipated and how they might be addressed.
  4. Consider how these lessons could be applied at participants’ home institutions.
