Arts, Humanities and Social Science in Medicine (AHSSM) Education Interest Group (EIG)

The Canadian Association for Medical Education (CAME) sponsored Arts, Humanities and Social Science in Medicine (AHSSM) Education Interest Group (EIG) was introduced to support networking and information sharing among those engaged in arts-based, humanities and social sciences-based teaching in medical and health professional education.

The AHSSM EIG website to offer information about upcoming events, available resources, as well as provide a directory listing of health humanities-related activities in Canadian medical schools.  Addressing a noted gap in this area relative to the US, UK, and other countries, the AHSSM EIG and its members are helping to expand awareness of, and dialogue about the presence and diversity of health humanities in medical and health professional education in Canada.

AHSSM EIG is also involved with the annual 'Creating Space' Symposium, exploring the paradigms of scholarship and practice: Arts, Humanities and the Social Sciences in the education of health professionals.
