ICRE pre-conference workshops provide full- and half-day forums for medical educators to network, collaborate, and take home valuable tools and knowledge to enhance their programs or practice.

These sessions focus largely on residency education, research, and faculty development. They are unique learning opportunities, providing extra time for more in-depth exploration and stronger skill building in each topic area.

One of this year’s offerings, the Conversations in Medical Supervision Course, will examine the quantity and quality of supervision provided to medical and other health trainees, a topic of recent concern in the Australian health system. To address this concern, Health Workforce Australia provided a number of grants to fund projects to research effective models of clinical supervision, and improve supervision capability. This course is the result of three years of research, piloting, development, evaluation and improvement.

Recently, the ICRE team spoke with Dr. Anthony Llewellyn, who along with Leonie Watterson, Arline Dumazel, and others will present the Conversations in Medical Supervision Course at ICRE 2015 on October 22 in Vancouver, BC.
