Professional Development: Information Technology in Academic Medicine Conference Gray

Funding for medical librarian Jamie Gray to attend the 2015 Information Technology in Academic Medicine Conference in San Diego CA in June of 2015. Ms. Gray's statement: Currently, I am the Associate Director for Administration & Liaison Services. In this role, I oversee the team providing services to faculty, staff, and students in both the School of Medicine and UW Medicine. As an administrator, I?m in an optimal position to not only engage with stakeholders, but provide tailored services to support user needs and expectations. Focus areas of the Conference include: technology leadership and policy, educational technologies, clinical care technologies, research IT and informatics, workforce development, and administrative technologies. Attendance at this conference will help to better build my knowledge base of challenges facing medical professionals at both a student and practitioner level. Issues related to technology are especially relevant, because of the diffuse nature of our medical program across the WWAMI region. Educating students and developing curriculum across the WWAMI region will require innovative uses of technology. This conference is the premier event for the academic medicine community to share how they address various challenges and develop successful strategies for meeting organizational goals in the health professions community. I hope that by attending this conference I will be in a better position to meet the following objectives: ? Gain a deeper understanding of how technology impacts clinician?s ability to treat their patients ? Be able to more effectively translate how library services (and librarian skills) can help address some of these issues in a language that clinicians understand ? Educate my fellow colleagues on changes that are happening which may impact the library?s strategic planning process
