Innovations in Medical Education (IME) submissions showcase innovative scholarly activities in medical education that are currently in progress or that have been completed. The hallmark of an innovation is that the idea is new and meets an important need in medical education. Projects for submission include, among others, the development, implementation, or evaluation of innovative courses, curricula, assessments, simulations, virtual patients, resources, web-based tools, or interdisciplinary collaborations. Unlike scientific abstracts, IME submissions are not required to have complete evaluation data but should include a discussion of proposed qualitative or quantitative metrics. Submissions with evaluation data, whether qualitative or quantitative, may receive higher ratings. Submissions should include enough information about the intervention for session attendees to evaluate feasibility of the innovation at their institution. IME sessions are designed to stimulate collaboration and creative thinking among meeting attendees.
