Health Professions Educators’ Summer Symposium-Information

Structure of the Week

  • The Summer Symposium (fondly known as Summer Camp) will begin on Monday July 16th, 8 AM and end Friday July 20th at noon. Each participant’s presence is required for the entire conference. Kindly arrange your travel so that you do not leave the session before noon on Friday. (Be sure and check the airport travel times listed below in our Travel Tips section.)

  • Structured interactive learning sessions will occupy each morning.
  • Morning academic sessions start promptly at 8 AM in the Terrace Ballroom (on the lower level); will include two breaks for phone calls, emails, etc. During the morning sessions, we ask participants to be “fully present”, i.e., put aside smart phones and refrain from emailing or texting. In exchange for this commitment, the leadership group and faculty agree to provide breaks as scheduled and to structure afternoon activities to allow time for personal and professional communications.
  • Afternoon Summer Symposium activities promote shared experiences and additional informal conversation among symposium participants. Activity choices will reflect a spectrum of interests; details will be sent later.
  • Afternoon activities are resort friendly so pack according to your level of interest; previous years’ offerings have included yoga, hiking, canoeing, swimming, biking, golf, jewelry creations, museum outings, scavenger hunts, garden walks and lectures.
  • Attire can be comfortable and casual…jeans and shorts are encouraged! Dress in layers due to A/C in conference rooms. Bring sneakers or comfortable walking shoes.
  • Nothing will be scheduled on Wednesday afternoon and evening, leaving that time free.
  • Families and guests are welcome to join afternoon and evening activities for an additional fee of $75 per person.
