Micro Teaching Session

This year at the Educational Strategies workshop, we will be having a Micro Teaching session featuring Quick and Fun Learning Ideas or Tools in lieu of the poster session! You will have 1-2 slides and 3 minutes to present your ideas – we are limited to 20 presenters, so if you are interested, sign up for a slot here.

Invitation to Attend

On behalf of the Program Committee, I would like to invite you to attend the 19th AMSMIC Workshop. 

This biennial workshop was developed and sponsored by the Association of Medical Schools Microbiology and Immunology Chairs (AMSMIC) in 1986. The focus of the meeting is sharing best practices in Microbiology and Immunology education in medical schools with the objective to help train the next generation of teachers and leaders in Microbiology and Immunology education.


The Workshop will enable the sharing of innovative strategies in Microbiology and Immunology teaching through facilitated group discussions, poster sessions, short oral presentations and informal networking. We have assembled what we think is a fantastic program with Keynote talks, interactive sessions and plenty of time for networking. We are also very excited that the meeting will include oral and poster presentations from our participants! We hope that this meeting format provides for robust discussion and the development of future collaborations and educational scholarship!
