The Teaching MDM Interest Group promotes collaboration in the development of educational materials, curricular resources, and instructional methods for teaching medical decision making to health care professionals, patients, and policy makers. The continued existence and growth of the field of medical decision making depends on its ability to train new MDM researchers and to propagate the concepts of MDM to health care professionals, patients, and policy makers. Because MDM is highly multidisciplinary in theory and practice, those who teach MDM need access to a broad range of resources and a diverse network of fellow educators.


SMDM Committees and Interest Groups will be holding meetings during breakfast and lunch. Please see the schedule below. A mission statement or agenda for these groups may be found under each daily tab during the appropriate time slot.

All interested attendees are encouraged to join a committee or interest group during these times.   

Groups meeting during lunch, lunch is not provided. We ask that participants use the first 1/2 hour of the break to have their lunch for which the hotel offers many options, then join the group for the last hour of the break for discussions.
