The new AcademyU® Learning Opportunities booklet can be found with this issue of the Bulletin. As we continue to enhance the effectiveness of our education portfolio, Members will see new Education and Knowledge products. These include the AcademyQ™ Knowledge Assessment app now available for Apple and Android with 800 assessment questions ideal for exam preparation; 25 Online Lectures from the 2014 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO,SM including two new Clinical Practice Guidelines lectures on Tinnitus and Allergic Rhinitis; updated eBooks on Head and Neck Cancer, Geriatric Otolaryngology, and Otolaryngology Lifelong Learning; and the fourth Annual ENT for the PA-c Conference to take place in March.
Education Member-volunteers are hard at work on a number of new projects in 2015, such as the implementation of an AcademyU® Education Platform, a nonphysician clinician initiative, faculty development courses, and education marketing strategies.
And last but not least, the Education Steering Committee is launching an Innovation Group that will become an integral component to the ongoing development of the AAO-HNSF’s new education platform. This group will determine learning opportunities for the education platform; assessing and recommending activity formats and design; and keeping apprised of emerging technological trends in professional education. This group, chaired by Richard V. Smith, MD, includes representatives from the eight education committees, young physicians, residents, and fellows.
“2015 promises to be an exciting year for education at the Foundation,” said Sonya Malekzadeh, MD, coordinator for education with the Foundation. “Stay tuned for updates on all the efforts of the education committees throughout the year.”
