Clinical Skills Proposals
The Clinical Skills Subcommittee (CSSC) is now accepting proposals for Internal Medicine 2015, April 30- May 2, 2015. The CSSC welcomes all proposals but places a priority on interactive workshops that focus on the acquisition or improvement of physical examination skills, communication skills, and procedural skills. The CSSC is most interested in workshops that have a high likelihood of changing physician behavior using proven teaching techniques or new and innovative teaching strategies that have yet to be tested. To submit a proposal to the committee, please complete the Proposal for Internal Medicine 2015 application.
The deadline for proposals is May 17, 2014.
