In This Month's Issue

The October theme issue—“Medical Education Innovations and Explorations,” showcases the breadth and scholarly achievement of SGIM members.

In this issue, Webber, et al, offer a few quick tips on how clinical teachers can adapt to new learning environments and platforms. Casas, et al, provide key questions for faculty and postgraduate trainees to ask when determining what curricula a training program offers on sex- and gender-based women’s health education, especially considering the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court. Greene, et al, describe their student-driven model of curriculum development to master core competencies in LGBTQ+ patient care. Murugan, et al, introduce the field of health systems science and the development of a clerkship module, which includes applying design thinking during a hackathon to tackle health systems issues, at Emory University School of Medicine. South, et al, also introduce two curricular threads—one on health systems science and another on health equity and advocacy—implemented in the fourth-year clerkship at University of Kentucky College of Medicine. LeRoi Hicks, SGIM President, and Eric Bass, SGIM CEO, offer a look ahead at SGIM’s priorities on advancing medical education, in and out of SGIM. Kyanko, et al, call members’ attention to SGIM’s Leadership in Health Policy (LEAHP) program, which will soon begin training its fifth cohort of applicants as health policy leaders.
