program highlights

Stanford Medicine X is excited to collaborate with ACCME, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, to explore how patients and educators might meaningfully work together to create a more inclusive, collaborative, and meaningful learning experience in CME. In this day-long workshop, Stanford Medicine X design facilitators Monika Wittig and Justin Lai will work with the president of ACCME, Graham McMahon, to lead a diverse group of patients, caregivers, providers, and educators in exploring and addressing the complex barriers that inhibit collaboration and co-creation in continuing medical education.
