LEARNING COMMUNITIES INSTITUTE 18TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Virtual Conference: October 15-16, 2021

The LCI 2021 annual meeting will be held virtually again this year. While we were looking forward to attending an in-person or hybrid event hosted by our friends and colleagues at Tecnológico de Monterrey, we will wait until 2022 to assemble in-person with Tecnológico de Monterrey as the event host.

The 2021 Annual Meeting Planning Committee is excited to create an engaging virtual environment to deliver our mission of building connections in medical education. Designed for faculty, learners and administrative staff, this year’s conference will feature a keynote address, plenary presentations, interactive workshops, panel presentations, oral presentations, and a poster session. Check back on the website in May for the announcement of the keynote speaker and conference theme.

Conference registration will open in late-June to early-July. Communication about registration will be sent to all constituents and updated on the website.
