2016 Keynote Speaker

Key Note Speaker: Mindy Schwartz, MD
Mindy Schwartz is a professor at the University of Chicago and is a national leader in teaching the history of medicine. Her work in this area includes the development of a case-based History of Medicine curriculum for medical students and faculty, unique in its emphasis on incorporating medical history into clinical practice. Dr. Schwartz has also been a leader in teaching clinical nutrition at Pritzker. In this interactive keynote, we will explore historical cases to identify what clinical decision making approaches are still relevant and important in a day and age of technology.


Student Panel: Envisioning New Models for Medical Education
Members of the SIU Med Ed interest group will make up this engaging panel. They will provide their perspective on how we could re-envision medical education to better meet the needs of patients, students, communities, and the profession. Through their eyes, we will get a glimpse of what the future of medical education could and should be. Dr. Anna Cianciolo, PhD, will moderate this panel discussion.

Both presentations are available in the Online Archive.
