Upcoming Workshop

2014 UCSF EDUCATION SYMPOSIUM WORKSHOP

Effective Procedural Teaching on the Fly

April 22nd 9-11am, CL-223

The Haile T. Debas Academy of Medical Educators is proud to present UCSF's 13th Annual Education Symposium on April 21-22. Plenary sessions, the keynote address and the poster sessions will be held on April 21.  On April 22, the Symposium will feature a workshop co-presented at Parnassus and UCSF Fresno.

Co-presented by UCSF faculty Kenny Banh, MD and Jeffrey Tabas, MD, this workshop will focus on educator techniques that make teaching procedures simultaneously successful, safe, and educationally high yield, all while ensuring patient satisfaction!  Drs. Banh and Tabas will review how to assess learners’ goals and abilities, avoid complications and assess what was learned. This session uses best practice review and small group discussion and is geared to educators at all levels who supervise learners of procedural skills.

Welcome to the Kanbar Center for Simulation, Clinical Skills and Telemedicine Education

What we do:

We support UCSF's educational mission of teaching, learning, and assessment through simulation recreating routine and complex situations, thereby improving patient care and safety. The center serves all five health professional schools at UCSF and provides learning opportunities across the continuum of health professions educaton.

 

Innovations and scholarships are a major focus of our center, where novel programs include interprofessional sessions with standardized patients, hybrid simulations focused on the ethics of healthcare, and longitudinal curricula that incorporate the the principles of viacarious learning.

 

Tele Technology Education: tele technology equipped rooms in our Simulation Center and the Anatomy Learning Center provide live videoconferencing broadcast for room to room team based learning.
