ASCO is proud to be a sponsor of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine’s Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education. The Global Forum brings together organizations and institutions with common interests in health professional education to explore issues related to educating future healthcare workers and preparing them to provide care in multidisciplinary, collaborative settings.
In October 2016, Dr. Elizabeth Hoppe, ASCO Secretary-Treasurer and Founding Dean of Western University of Health Sciences College of Optometry, and Dawn Mancuso, ASCO Executive Director, attended the Global Forum’s “Future Financing of Health Professional Education: A Workshop.” The objective of the workshop was to explore the evidence, assumptions, tensions, potential benefits, and challenges to financing health professional education (HPE) and the levers and drivers that influence the cost of HPE. More information about the workshop, including links to video and slide presentations, can be found online.
The next workshop of the Global Forum, “Exploring a Business Case for High-Value Continuing Professional Development,” will be held in April 2017.
