On August 27-28 (Saturday and Sunday), we’re hosting a symposium at Stanford University School of Medicine for early- and mid-career physicians who teach clinical skills. The symposium’s interactive curriculum will help these teachers become more effective educators and introduce them to an international community of like-minded practitioners.
Want to join us? If you’d like a chance to learn the Stanford 25 bedside medicine teaching methods and exam techniques, there is only a little bit of time left to register for the 2016 Skills Symposium. You can find the details here.
Our priority for the Stanford 25 is to promote the culture of bedside medicine not only through online content but also through hands-on sessions. We do this regularly at Stanford, and the symposium is an opportunity to extend this teaching to other institutions throughout the U.S. and around the world.
Many diseases are diagnosed by the bedside exam. In neurology, for example, even though a CT or MRI reveals a lot, only the physical exam can reveal the functional consequences in terms of motor or sensory loss or cognitive deficit.
We find a real hunger among residents in internal medicine to develop and sharpen their skills at the bedside. What you learn at the 2016 Stanford 25 Skills Symposium can facilitate that learning. Here are some of the opportunities you’ll have at the symposium:
• Hear master clinician and author Dr. Steve McGee discuss his evidenced-based approach to the bedside exam.
• Choose from five afternoon tracks to customize your experience.
• Attend on-stage demonstrations of exam techniques.
• Break into small groups to practice and create your own bedside exam teaching moments to share with others.
• Meet, interact and learn from like-minded clinicians who care about the bedside exam as much as you do.
