    Greetings Colleagues,

    This is the last call to participate in the MED Junior Faculty and Doctoral Students Consortium at AOM. Given MED's interdisciplinary nature and our Consortium design, you can totally double dip and successfully participate in MED's consortium while also participating in your area-specific consortium. Welcome event is scheduled for Friday evening. Please see the call below for details. If interested, don't forget to sign up using the Google form link provided in the call.

    The Annual MED's consortium at AOM (being offered exclusively in-person), facilitates the professional development of junior faculty (5 years or less since the first faculty position) and doctoral students who are aiming for a successful faculty career and is OPEN to all AOM attendees across all divisions! Given MED's interdisciplinary membership, our consortium is offered in a unique way so as to allow the participants to come up with a customizable bundle that addresses their teacher-scholar needs. Additionally, you do not have to dedicate a full day to attend a live consortium. On successful completion, participants are also awarded a certificate from MED-AOM! 
    To successfully participate in the consortium, participants will meet the following requirements:

    Consortium participants will choose to attend THREE professional development workshops (PDWs) from a select list of PDWs being offered by MED at this year's meeting. These workshops focus on a wide-range of topics relevant for professional development of emerging teacher-scholars (the list to be shared soon). 

    Attendees will also participate in TWO bookend events (pre and post) which include a Friday evening (August 5 between 6:00pm-7:00pm) introductory welcome/mixer and a Monday morning (August 8 between 8:00pm-9:00am) breakfast. The goal is to provide participants with a platform to network, create a community, and reflect on their learning.
