Symposium on teaching bedside medicine set for Aug. 27-28

The two-day event is designed to help early and mid-career physicians who teach clinical skills become better teachers of bedside medicine.

Registration is open for the Stanford 25 Skills Symposium 2016.

The two-day event, scheduled for Aug. 27-28, is designed for early and mid-career physicians who teach clinical skills. It will take place at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.

The interactive program aims to help participants become more effective at teaching bedside medicine and provides a community of like-minded practitioners.

Mornings will be spent in plenary sessions and afternoons will have five tracks from which to choose: bedside ultrasound, Stanford Medicine 25, outpatient, 5-minute bedside moment and clinical skills assessment.

Attendance is limited to ensure that adequate opportunities for learning and practicing are available for each participant.    

Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
