Copy of Aquifer Educators Consortium – Test

The Aquifer Educators Consortium forms the bedrock of Aquifer, bringing together more than 70 healthcare educators across disciplines—experts from the national leadership of organizations like AAIM, COMSEP, STFM, AGS, IAMSE, AUR/AMSER, and SIDM—to collaborate, innovate, and make advances in health professions education.

For educators and healthcare providers, participation in the Consortium offers a unique cross-disciplinary peer community and an exciting opportunity for academic scholarship and advancement.

Experience, Expertise, & Perspective

The Aquifer Educators Consortium includes a series of unique interdisciplinary and discipline-specific teams working together to consider major issues and changes in education, and build a cohesive approach to pedagogy, assessment, and teaching across Aquifer’s courses.

Consortium members are expert healthcare educators from across the country­—including award winners and leaders in national organizations—who possess the knowledge and skills needed to work collaboratively to create quality virtual case-based courses and assessments.

The Consortium at Work: Building Tools & Community

The Consortium creates 100% of Aquifer’s course content, from developing new content and teaching tools to writing and editing virtual patient cases and assessment questions­. The result is evidence-based, peer-reviewed, pedagogically sound content that educators and learners can trust.

But beyond the content, the Consortium provides direct strategic leadership to define the Aquifer pedagogy, inform technology development, and address emerging concepts and issues. Consortium members represent Aquifer within their national organizations, acting as ambassadors at national meetings to connect with other users and often presenting their work to the academic community.
