Please note that free access to the OMERAD IAMSE webinar series is limited to CHM faculty and staff only. This includes anyone who has an MSU-CHM appointment and interacts or works with CHM students.

Registration to participate in the webinar series is required. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the registration form:


Benefits of registration:

  • Receive weekly reminders and instructions with access codes for weekly webinars.
  • Access to recorded videos of seminar sessions as your own schedule allows (in case you can't attend the session at the time of broadcast).
  • Links to downloadable presentation handouts and discussion forum.

You can join the webcast seminars from the comfort of your office, or conference room. The webinar series offers a 1-hour telephone conference call supplemented by webcast PowerPoint slides. Sessions are theme based and of interest to anyone who has responsibility teaching medical students and residents.

IMPORTANT: Please read below for logistics on what you need for a successful connection to the webcast.

All audio seminars are conducted using the IAMSE teleconference bridge. A registered participant may be alone on the phone, be on a speaker phone in his/her office with one or two others, or dial in directly from a conference room speaker phone with full projection equipment if attending the webinar as a group. Please note - it is essential when using speaker phones that mute buttons be switched ON. The telephone line use to dial into the teleconference bridge will need to access a long distance phone call to California (USA). No software or downloads need to be made, you will simply need a telephone and internet accessible computer to participate.
