Medical Education Special Interest Group

The Medical Education Special Interest Group (SIG), created in 2017, is a group of NASPGHAN members sharing an interest in education.  The group’s mission is to support the development of teaching skills and scholarship in medical education, to foster career development of individuals interested in education, and ensure that exceptional educators are recognized by our society.  The MedEd SIG will meet yearly at the annual meeting and may also meet at DDW or by conference call. We plan on supporting the submission of educational scholarship for presentation at the NASPGHAN Annual Meeting and hope to sponsor career development sessions in collaboration with the Professional Development Committee.
