Given the outstanding success of IGMA’s second annual conference which was held in December of 2021, IGMA is poised to host our 3rd annual conference, Back to the Future; Where we’ve been and where we’re going in medical education’s most effective patient empowerment model.
This year, the Conference Committee, Chaired by Molly Callahan, is looking to host another 3 day event with a focus on the voice of GTAs/MUTAs and FTAs active in the field and is reaching out to speakers in all areas of the world who are involved in the methodology. We will address trans education, inequity in health care, patient empowerment in various forms, reproductive rights and new innovations in the field of GTA/MUTA education. We also plan to have panel discussions and networking events.
If you are involved in GTA/MUTA methodology, Forensic Teaching Associate methodology or patient empowerment, whether you are an active GTA/MUTA or FTA, or program director or faculty member, or if you have completed research in the field, we invite you to submit an abstract to present at this year’s conference. Our abstract portal is live and the submission process is simple. All submissions must be completed by August 15, 2022. Be a part of the success of this year’s IGMA conference. Make your voice heard.

We will be sending regular updates on conference content so check your email for updates. We will be looking for abstract reviewers to assist and if you have an interest in sponsoring this event, please reach out to us at IGMA.firstname.lastname@example.org sponsors receive time at the conference to speak about their product or business, a page in our program book and your logo on ALL conference materials and marketing events.
Remember this is YOUR organization. IGMA is the ONLY organization dedicated to GTA MUTA methodology and your help is needed. Currently, there is a Secretary position open on the Board of Directors. The meetings are once a month. The conference, membership, and SoBP committees are looking for members to assist. The current tasks are monumental for just two or three people. If you are interested in trans health, Erik Simon, the trans health committee Chair is conducting innovative work in the field. IGMA also needs people skilled in statistics to assist with scholarly research; people skilled in marketing and fundraising. If you are talented in these areas or have a passion of your own, please consider offering an hour out of your busy schedule each month to make magic happen within this organization, and please consider joining the organization. Email email@example.com for more information.
As always, the Board of the International GTA MUTA Association thanks each and every one of you for the exceptional work you are doing in the field.
