The giving and receiving of feedback is one of the most significant methods of assisting personal growth. When asked to identify the most important experiences in their personal growth and development, most learners will talk about instructors who have given them direct and pertinent feedback. Such feedback can profoundly influence the ways people behave and develop as medical professionals.

At the end of the session, clinician-educators will be able to:

  • Differentiate between feedback and evaluation
  • State the purpose of feedback in the clinical setting
  • Analyze the parts of the clinical feedback session
  • Determine the effectiveness of clinical feedback

During the workshop, participants will:

  • Participate in brief didactics on effective feedback
  • In small groups, discuss key elements of feedback

Light snack available.
