Pre-Conference Events

Thursday 25 August

Foundation Skills for Surgical Educators (Professional Development Course)
The Foundations Skills for Surgical Educators is a new course directed at facilitating the education and training of Surgical trainees and will establish the basic standards expected of our surgical educators within the College.  This free one day course will provide an opportunity for participants to identify their own personal strengths and weaknesses as an educator and explore how they are likely to influence their learners and the learning environment. The course will further knowledge and skills in teaching and learning concepts and look at how these principles can be applied into the participant's own teaching context.

Enrol in the Foundation Skills for Surgical Educators Course

The Academy of Surgical Educators Forum (Professional Development Course)
The evening will be convened by Associate Professor Stephen Tobin, Dean of Education and Dr Sally Langley, Chair, Academy of Surgical Educators and will feature preeminent thought leaders discussing progressive topics in medical education. Attendees will enjoy a three course meal and drinks whilst workshopping questions at their tables and encouraging  in a Q and A session with the panel of experts.
