Meeting Optimization Program - UCSF Interdisciplinary Group Published in MedEdPORTAL

A collaborative effort by UCSF faculty and staff, UCSF's Meeting Optimization Program, a workshop for learners, faculty, and administrators to create an institutional culture where meetings are interactive and transformational events, was recently published in MedEdPORTAL.

Meeting Optimization Program: A “Workshop in a Box” to Create Meetings That Are Transformational Tools for Institutional Change highlights the creation of UCSF's Meeting Optimization Program (MOP), a 75- to 90-minute workshop that contains the key elements of effective meetings culled from existing literature and resources. MOP includes interactive discussion and a role-play to allow participants to practice effective meeting skills. The piece is the result of interdisciplinary work among UCSF faculty and staff, with the primary author and Academy member Anda Kuo, MD, along with co-authors, Beth Wilson, MD, MPH; Dixie Horning; Catherine Lucey, MD; Suzanne Kawahara; and Stephanie Belger.
