SCORE School: Weekly TWIS Sessions

SCORE is organizing a national weekly one-hour virtual conference, based on the “This Week in SCORE” (TWIS) curricular tool.

To attend, email, and we will provide you with dial-in instructions.

Sessions began on Wednesday, May 13 at 8 PM ET and will occur every Wednesday at 8 PM ET through the summer and possibly beyond. Leading experts in the weekly TWIS topic will provide an overview, discuss high-yield teaching points, and take questions from the live audience via chat. Each session will be recorded for later viewing, available below. SCORE is offering this to all programs and learners as hospitals and their faculty face changes to rotation and learning schedules with the unfolding pandemic.

ABSITE Study Plan Sessions 

SCORE released the ABSITE Study Plan in 2018 and hosted three live, online webinars to help residents, administrators and program directors get up to speed with the functionality. The Study Plan enables residents to create a self-directed learning improvement plan using their 2018 ABSITE score report, with a completion date and progress report that is shared with their program director. Please feel free to review the recordings of the webinars to learn more about the feature's details:
