This session will feature several articles published recently in the CMEJ identified as “most influential”. Authors will outline the implications of their paper and ways they have seen or hope it will influence medical education. Ample time will be provided for discussion. This will be a dynamic session and an opportunity to interact with some authors at the forefront of medical education.

The CMEJ Senior Section Editors and its Management Board provided guidance for the selection process. Papers were initially screened into a nomination pool based on citations, views, and downloads. The final decision was made by the Editor-in-Chief based on recommendations and direction from the Senior Section Editors.

Plan to attend this session, the first of its kind at ICAM. Consider preparing by reading the articles in the CMEJ as authors will not be giving a thorough presentation of their work.
