Summary: In more than a century since the Flexner report, the fields that comprise
“the sciences of learning” (education, neurobiology of learning, social and cognitive psychology, among others) have advanced greatly. Despite this progress, medical education has been slow to translate these empirically-derived sciences to our
educational models, structures, and practices. In this session, we will actively engage five empirically-derived sciences of learning using these very sciences of learning.
The hope is that education leaders, classroom teachers, clinical educators, and learners will value and benefit from these approaches and be better able to serve our future learners, patients, and communities thereby.
