Background: Talent is highly regarded in high performance sports as a key feature for athletes to succeed. In medicine, talent is not a commonly held conversation, even though, medical students are usually identified as high achieving, internally motivated individuals. We suggest that bringing talent into the conversation of medical education research, will help us enrich how medical schools design selection processes. In this workshop we will bring awareness into the notion of talent from sports science research and invite discussion around how to embrace talent identification and development in medicine. The participants in this workshop will gain a better understanding of the notion of talent across different professional contexts. Furthermore, the workshop will encourage participants to share their personal experiences and practices in identifying and selecting talented medical students. Finally, the workshop aim to extent participants’ repertoire of strategies in identifying and fostering talent at their institutions.
Structure of Workshop: The latest research on talent identification and development will be presented and discussed. Participants will engage in an exercise including moderated focus group interview, poster production, and group discussions regarding how to identify, recruit, and develop talents at their institutions.
Intended Outcome: At the end of this workshop, participants will be armed with new strategies for securing and fostering talents at their institution, and a distinct plan for how, when, and where they can apply their new strategies.
Who Should Attend: Teachers, clinical supervisors, program directors, and other professionals with an interest in fostering talent in medical schools. Workshop Level: Introductory
