The Master Adaptive Learner Framework for Health Professions Education

The American Medical Association supported work on new conceptualizations of life-long learning as it applies to all levels of practitioners. What emerged is the Master Adaptive Learner framework – a metacognitive framework that seeks to create a shared language to promote evidence-based learning by and between clinicians. In this workshop, we will look at the MAL model from varying perspectives in order to make it applicable to your education practice.

Dr. Pusic is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine in the Harvard Medical School and Scholar in Residence at the Brigham Education Institute. He is also Director of the Research Education Foundation at the American Board of Medical Specialties as well as a practicing Pediatric Emergency Medicine physician at the Boston Children’s Hospital.

His research has bridged multiple medical specialties, with a focus on the intersection between the data you can collect in a digital environment and how that data can be analyzed to nurture and certify expertise development.

He obtained his medical degree from the University of British Columbia, a fellowship in pediatric emergency medicine at McGill, and his Masters (Informatics) and PhD (Human Cognition) from Columbia University.

He is currently Past President of the Society of Directors of Research in Medical Education, Co-Chair of the American Heart Association’s Education Science & Programs Subcommittee and has been Co-Chair of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Medical Education Research Grant Committee.
