The Education Research Subcommittee of the Academy of Distinguished Educators (ADE) held the first ever Medical Education Research Poster Session at the University of Virginia School of Medicine on February 21-23, 2005, in front of the Health Sciences Library. Forty abstracts were submitted; after peer review of the abstracts (4 reviewers scored each abstract), the top scoring 28 posters were selected for presentation. There were 14 abstracts on research related to undergraduate medical education (UME), 11 abstracts on research related to graduate medical education (GME), 1 abstract on research related to continuing medical education (CME) and 2 abstracts related to the Academy of Distinguished Educators (ADE). Five of the abstracts described work that had been funded by the first round of ADE medical education research grants and several other abstracts described work funded by the AInnovations in GME@ grant award program.

The Poster Session was kicked off by a reception on Monday evening, February 21, 2005, from 5:00-7:00 pm, in the Claude Moore Health Science Library.
The goals of the reception and the poster session were to highlight the medical education research currently being conducted at the School of Medicine and to increase wider interest in medical education research among the faculty by illustrating examples of good medical education research, by publicizing the Faculty Development Session (March 3, 2005) on medical education research funding and by stimulating faculty to apply for the 2nd round of ADE medical education research grants (application deadline: May 1, 2005).
The poster session and reception were organized by Bob Bloodgood on behalf of the Academy of Distinguished Educators, with assistance from Dr. Karen Johnston, Linda Watson, Elizabeth Graham and Wilma Lynch.
