Medical Education Workshops
In 2006 - 2007 the Office of Faculty Development introduced an initiative on medical education, highlighting innovative practices (such as the use of simulator models), teaching and learning strategies in the clinical setting, and web-based training. Please consult the The Academy at Boston Children's Hospital link, as well as the OFD homepage, for medical education courses and information.
Previous Workshops and Resources:
Presented by Peter Weinstock, MD, Instructor in Anesthesia, How Doctors Learn: The Role of Simulation in Modern Medical Education: (October 2006) "The on-site simulator creates a realistic, interactive experience that can be readily adapted to teach a host of learning objectives to a wide range of health care professionals," according to Peter Weinstock, MD, PhD, Associate Director of the Simulator Program, Division of Critical Care Medicine. He explained that adult learners prefer to use past experience to problem-solve scenarios and want to apply what they learn to everyday life. The adult experiential learning cycle begins with the incorporation of new knowledge through experience followed by reflection, conceptualization, and ends with experimentation. Dr. Weinstock showed how the simulation experience maps perfectly onto this cycle. This increased understanding and appreciation of how adults learn is driving physician educators such as Dr. Weinstock to develop hospital-based simulator programs as new paradigms in post-graduate medical education.

Assessing Interpersonal and Communication Skills: (March 2005)This interactive workshop was designed to provide participants with a framework for teaching and assessing communication skills and includes seven principles on physician-patient interaction. The model provides trainees with a communications framework that encourages listening skills and the ability to engage the patient in a meaningful and productive conversation. See also the Essential Element of Communication in Medical Encounters: the Kalamazoo Consensus Statement (Academic Medicine 2001; 76:390-93)
Giving Reflective Feedback to Trainees: What to do when you only have 5 minutes (April 2005)This interactive workshop provided participants with a model that enhances self-reflection in the learner, strategies to help learners improve interactions with patients, and practical guidelines for giving feedback and facilitating reflection. The guidelines, which include eight basic steps and a suggest script, are available from Dr Rider. For more information on this workshop, go to Perspectives, May-June 2005, p2.
