ICE Summit: Controversies in Medical Education

Do you dream about having your mind stimulated and your convictions pushed to the limit? Would you like to interact with Clinician Educator thinkers and doers from around the world? Then the ICE Summit is the event for YOU!

Led by dynamic and renowned Clinician Educators, ICE Summit will push you to think deeply about the most controversial and provocative elements of MedEd – our speakers aren’t presenters, they are provocateurs! [pruh-vok-uh-tur, noun; a person who deliberately behaves controversially in order to provoke argument or other strong reactions.]

Our Summit is about discussing and sharing ideas with some of the brightest minds in MedEd. You will leave with new ideas and concepts, a renewed zest for education practice, a collection of strong take-home messages and new network of international colleagues.

Please note that this event is held in English only and is exclusively for practicing clinician educators. The ICE Summit defines a ‘clinician educator’ as follows:

  • Is a current or former clinician with experience in the delivery of healthcare as well as the supervision and teaching of health professionals;
  • Applies education, psychology, and leadership theory to educational practice;
  • Engages in education scholarship; and
  • Provides consultation and advice regarding educational issues in the health professions.
