As for the 56th Annual Meeting Special Program

The 56th Annual Meeting of the Japan Society for Medical Education (JSME) has prepared six special symposia related to the theme "diversity & inclusion. For the following four symposia, we invite you to submit examples of your own practices at your facilities.
If your presentation is not selected for one of the special symposia, you may submit it for a free paper.

(1) Student project: Our “OSHI”('Recommended') Curriculum
We are looking for a "Recommended Curriculum" of your university (institute) that you would like to recommend to other universities. The first speaker and co-presenters must be students, but they are encouraged to participate in the symposium with a faculty member. A social event will be held as part of the symposium after the plenary session to deepen the friendship among students. Please submit your abstract on the condition that you are able to attend the social event.
(2) Support for Health-care Professionals of Child-raising Generation
Reforming the work styles of physicians and building the careers of health-care professionals of the child-raising generation are both important issues. We would like to solicit effective initiatives and plans to support health-care professionals of child-raising generation beyond health professions education broadening horizons, and to spread the support for health-care professionals of child-raising generation throughout the country.
(3) What do students, residents, and supervisors learn from community medicine clerkship and training?
As the saying goes, "There are as many different types of community medicine as there are regions. We are looking for educational cases experienced during undergraduate and postgraduate clinical training. In particular, we are looking for examples of practices that are in line with the theme of this meeting, "diversity & inclusion," not only successful examples , but also unsuccessful ones from which lessons can be learned. We hope that by sharing experiences, we can learn a lot from them.
(4) Interprofessional Collaboration and Psychological safety
Interprofessional collaboration may be hampered by various conflicts and frictions due to diversity of the team members. One of the keys for a medical team to bring true benefit to patients is the psychological safety of the team. In keeping with the theme of the 55th Annual Meeting, "Lights and Shadows," we are calling for a wide range of ideas and efforts to improve the psychological safety of teams, whether in undergraduate interprofessional education or postgraduate interprofessional practice, including not only successful examples but also difficult ones with which you are struggling.
