Theme & Session Types

The 2018 Annual Program Meeting (APM) theme is "Expanding Interprofessional Education to Achieve Social Justice."

The majority of the conference program consists of competitively selected presentations in a variety of educational formats. Presentations are selected through a blind peer-review process from all proposals submitted to the 2018 APM Call for Proposals. 

Competitive papers are presented in one of four formats:

  1. Electronic Poster (e-poster) (60 minutes)—encourages lively discussion between the presenter and viewers of the material and often focuses on a study, survey, or similar research method and its outcomes
  2. Interactive Workshop (60 minutes; CE credits available)—emphasizes dynamic instructor–participant dialogue in achieving the session’s learning objectives
  3. Oral Presentation (60 minutes)—includes two 20-minute presentations, each followed by a 10-minute question-and-answer period
  4. Panel (60 minutes; CE credits available)—features two to four presenters on a particular subject
