Comments from Previous Attendees

“The best part was the simulation lab. It’s one of the few opportunities I have had as senior faculty to receive feedback on my performance. Observing other people giving feedback helped me with real-life strategies for doing this in my own residency.”

“The most useful part of the course for me was Wednesday morning in the simulation lab. It was amazing and I learned so much.”

“My favorite parts of this course were the simulation and group exercises. Hands on experience always sticks better for me than just theoretical presentation.”
