On behalf of the Program Committee, I would like to welcome you to the 18th 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 from Dr. Claudia Kemper from the NIH and Dr. Alice Fornari from the Zucker School of Medicine. We are also very excited that the meeting includes 27 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!
