Education as Healthcare Missions: The Criticality of Critical Thinking

hosted by: Bruce Dahlman

November 7 2019 1:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Main Building FH 131

Meeting Overview

Excellence in healthcare delivery requires practitioners who know how to listen to a patient and "think critically". Often educational styles in areas of cross-cultural service do not always emphasize this important skill. In bedside teaching, this often requires an apprenticeship, one to one interaction, often a luxury in high-demand contexts. Building on a 2018 GMHC presentation, this workshop will explore the importance of modeling critical thinking and, after demonstrations, give participants opportunity to practice interactive teaching skills in buzz groups.
