Event: Using the RIME Framework to Evaluate Learning: A Vision for the Future of Assessment

Renowned medical educator Louis N. Pangaro, MD, MACP will host an interactive workshop for the IU School of Medicineon Friday, February 19

on descriptive
evaluation of medical students’ performance. His workshop will focus on a practical method for faculty to gather useful, descriptive, and timely evaluations on medical students’ performance. Live stream details are below.

Dr. Pangaro will employ his RIME framework, a schematic and vocabulary that medical educators can use to observe and evaluate students’ performance, as part of this workshop. Many institutions across the U.S. have adopted this framework to evaluate whether students have achieved the following developmental milestones:

• Reporter of data (collecting and communicating clinical information);
• Interpreter of data (level of critical thinking);
• Manager of patients’ care; and
• Educator of patients, self and others.

Dr. Pangaro is an internationally renowned expert in all aspects of medical education, most notably in the area of assessment/evaluation of individual learners, evaluation using standardized patients, and program evaluation. All faculty, fellows, and residents are invited to attend.

Come and see how medical students should be evaluated and how this evaluation data can be collected in a timely fashion!

Dr. Pangaro will also be presenting at Medicine Grand Rounds on Friday, February 19 at 12 Noon in Emerson Hall Auditorium. His lecture is entitled, Evaluation is Professionalism.

This event is sponsored by the IU School of Medicine Department of Medicine and the VA, in conjunction with the Sarosi Lectureship in Medical Education.
