The Society of Bedside Medicine is co-sponsoring a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the stethoscope with the Royal College of Physicians on Edinburgh entitled “Diagnostic Medicine: From Stethoscope to Artificial Intelligence.” This one-day symposium in Scotland will explore the history and evolution of diagnostic medicine, and will include outstanding speakers from around the world such as Abraham Verghese. We would love for you to join us in Edinburgh this fall!
Join us at the 2019 Stanford Bedside Medicine Symposium! Society Members can submit proposals for workshops now.
The Society of Bedside Medicine is putting on a series of 5 seminars at the Waxman Clinical Skills Center at ACP 2019. Come and join us on Friday, April 12, and Saturday, April 13!
If you are not yet a member of the Society, you can apply $100 of your conference registration fee to become a new member.
This annual event hosted by Stanford is a great way to meet colleagues who share a passion for bedside medicine. We hope to see you there!
2nd Annual Society of Bedside Medicine Poster Session
We invite you to submit a poster to the Society's 2nd annual poster session at the Stanford Clinical Skills Symposium. Posters should inform attendees of a learning point from 1) an interesting clinical case, 2) a bedside teaching moment, or 3) an aspect of medical education. Posters will be moderated in an informal networking session and there will be prizes for the best posters. Abstracts presented elsewhere are acceptable. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2018. Submit your poster here.

Society Member Janelle Aby will be presenting a symposium entitled "Back to the Bedside: Strategies for Teaching Physical Diagnosis in the Age of Technology" at the PAS meeting in Toronto on May 7th at 3:30pm.
This symposium at the intersection of the art, science, engineering, and economics of medicine seeks to engage clinicians, patients, engineers, philosophers, entrepreneurs, academics, and more.
Whether we are ready for it or not, artificial intelligence/machine learning/data-driven technologies are progressively becoming a part of medicine. Yet medicine must remain fundamentally an endeavor of humans caring for other humans.
With purposeful insight, this Human and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine Symposium will bring together a dynamic community of key thought-leaders to guide and mature a conversation on recognizing the powerful potential of such engineering opportunities, while at the same time, mitigating the risks of many unintended, but predictable, consequences.
Society of Bedside Medicine Members can attend for the Stanford discount rate of $100

Royal College of Physicians: From Holmes to House - 500 years of the diagnostic neurologist
The conference will both look at where we have come from and where we are heading in the areas of neuroimmunology (paraneoplastic syndromes, the overlap with neuropsychiatry), neurogenetics (how this changing treatments in mitochondrial disorders and how Big Data will affect patient care) and neuroimaging (and the relationship to BioBank) as well as considering the risks in terms of over-diagnosis in neurology.
The conference is part of the RCPs 500th anniversary celebrations and takes place on the birthday of William Gowers, who many consider to be the founder of modern neurology. We look both back to the time of Gowers and forward to the era of Big Data in genetics, immunology and imaging and how these are being used in patient care with both potential benefits and risks. The conference will also look at how concepts of clinical reasoning have evolved from the time of Gowers (who knew the author Conan Coyle of Sherlock Holmes fame) to the 21st century (taking the fictional example of Dr House as our example).

Andrew Elder (Advisory board member) and Brian Garibaldi (Co-president) will be presenting at the "Back to the Bedside Symposium" at St. Peter's University Hospital in March, 2018.

St. Andrew's Day Festival: Updates On Acute Medicine
The St Andrew’s Day Festival Symposium is the highlight of the RCPE’s educational year and brings together a vast array of international leaders covering the breadth of medicine and its specialties. The symposium will be of great interest to clinicians from all areas including those involved with acute and general medicine, emergency medicine and those physicians who require updates on advances outside their own specialty. The programme will also be relevant to doctors at all levels of training, general practitioners, specialist nurse practitioners and allied health professionals.
Note: The symposium is full on both days and a waiting list is now in operation. Places will be offered on a first-come-first served basis. Please contact Fiona MacDougall (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Helen Elliott (email@example.com) if you wish to be added to the waiting list.
Please do not book your travel or accommodation until your place has been confirmed by the RCPE.
SBM Featured Workshop: A Better Way to Assess Exam Skills: Direct Observation and Volunteer Patients - Brian T. Garibaldi, MD, Co-President, SBM
The 2017 Alliance Skills and Leadership Conference is a three-day conference composed of three one-day precourses, which take place October 19, and a two-day meeting from October 20–21. This workshop-heavy conference will provide the keys for professional growth to help faculty and staff at any career level be better administrators, teachers, mentors, and employees. The meeting will feature plenary sessions with tangible takeaways on fostering effective team dynamics, time management, and change management.
The conference is open to all members across all career levels. Unlike previous AAIM meetings there is no association specific meeting, but there will be educational tracks to help you choose your educational path at the conference. Download the agenda to see the workshops and tracks offered.

Please join the SBM for its inaugural annual meeting and poster session as part of the Stanford 25 Bedside Medicine Symposium. This year, you can apply $100 from your Symposium fee to become an SBM member. SBM members will have the opportunity to present their educational innovations and research in a poster session on the first night of the conference. In future years, SBM members will receive a discount to the symposium.
The 2017 Stanford 25 Bedside Medicine Symposium is an annual event which brings together medical educators from around the world to foster clinical teaching skills. We aim to build a sense of community among all those who attend and to increase both individual physical examination skills as well as the ability of those in attendance to teach and evaluate the clinical skills of their learners. We accomplish this with lectures by expert clinicians, live demonstrations and hands on workshops using both real and standardized patients. The content is aimed at early and mid-career physician educators, but would also be appropriate for chief residents and senior residents looking for a career in medical education. This year we are excited to offer CME credit as well as a poster session for attendees to present research and clinical cases that are related to bedside medicine and physical examination.
