"Highlights of The 4th Medical Education Conference: Cultivating Professionalism and Research in Medical Education"


About this webcast

The 4th Medical Education Conference (MEC):“Cultivating Professionalism and Research in Medical Education”, was organised on the 5th May 2018 by the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine (The Academy) and the Hong Kong Jockey Club Innovative Learning Centre for Medicine. 

The MEC is one of the flagship events of the HKAM to pursue The Academy’s goal to maintain high standards of medical education. To celebrate the Silver Jubilee of The Academy, the MEC, echoing our anniversary slogan “Medical Excellence for a Healthier Future”, focuses on two most fundamental elements for better postgraduate clinical training outcomes, professionalism and research.

The workshop entitled “Innovative approaches to Emergency and Disaster Medicine Education” is supported by the HKJCDPRI, generously funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

The HKJCDPRI would like to share with you some highlights of the workshop in this webcast.

What you will hear

In line with the most recent adult learning theories, including the concepts of self-directed learning, andragogy and experiential learning, CRIMEDIM courses are based on innovative teaching methodologies such as distance learning, table-top exercises, virtual reality simulations and disaster drills. By integrating the learning process to the demand of everyday life, simulations and functional exercises promote the development of various degrees of competences needed in emergency and disaster settings, such as leadership, organization and command-and-control, within a safe educational environment. The development of simple, objective and standardized methods based on scientific evidence allows our trainers to assess medical performance during such exercises, further helping trainees to critically reflect on the learning material, enhancing their knowledge, skills and attitudes.

Target Audience

The webinar will be of interest to local and international medical experts, educators, researchers and healthcare professionals to deliberate on ways to cultivate the development of healthcare providers with professional attributes and to nurture research in medical training, as well as future directions of post-graduation education, especially that of disaster education.
