To foster a dialogue about learning communities among all medical schools, the Carver College of Medicine hosted the inaugural Learning Communities Institute: Providing Connections for a Meaningful Medical Education, held September of 2005 in Iowa City. Several more meeting followed at other institutions before the Learning Communities Institute began sponsoring an Annual Meeting timed and located in proximity to AAMC national meetings. These gatherings brought together students and faculty interested in activities of professional development to further strengthen this aspect of medical education.
