harvardmacy Can we convince our organizations that encouraging our curiosity and creativity - while not 'typical' scholarly activity - could be worthwhile and beneficial to ourselves, our peers, our learners, and our patients? #MedEd #HPE #HMIchat @keefer007 @rahimkachra @DrVanessaBohn twitter.com/rahimkachra/status/1037510984821133312

harvardmacy Third is @RahimKachra , who often has his head in the clouds, fantasizing about how he can make transformative large-scale & sustainable changes in #MedEd . In his spare time, he smashes silos in education, watches the @EdmontonOilers or @LFC , & longs for #AMEE2019 . #HMIchat

harvardmacy Moderator #2 is @DrVanessaBohn - passionate about the culture of medicine, team dynamics & how both affect the learner. She is the mother of the youngest Harvard Macy scholar, who attended #HMIEducators at 2 months old, though he can be forgiven for sleeping through it. #HMIchat

For each of us that has taken a Harvard Macy course, our time in that egg-shaped incubator of a room in Boston was truly special. We want to continue our interactions, draw inspiration from and continue to contribute back to our Harvard Macy community. Given the importance of social interaction in all Harvard Macy courses, Twitter has become our tool of choice for #HMIchat. Twitter enables both synchronous dialogue and ongoing asynchronous discussion. Please join us on Twitter—together we can maintain our nurturing community of practice!
