The theme for the annual ‘Manchester Medical Education conference 2016, to be held on Monday 11 April 2016 at MRI (Manchester Royal Infirmary), will be ‘Clinical Reasoning and curriculum changes to the MBChB at Manchester Medical School’
There will be significant curriculum delivery changes to the MBChB programme in the coming academic year and this conference will explore those changes. We have a range of local and international speakers:
- Prof Tony Freemont will introduce the conference and give an update on developments at Manchester Medical School.
- Prof Pat Croskerry: Professor in Emergency Medicine in the Division of Medical Education at Dalhousie University, Canada. In addition to his medical training, he holds a doctorate in Experimental Psychology and Fellowship in Clinical Psychology. His research is principally concerned with clinical decision-making, especially the processes that lead to diagnostic failure. He has published over 80 journal articles and 30 book chapters in the area of patient safety, clinical decision making, and medical education reform.
- Prof Doug Corfield: Professor of Medical Sciences, Programme Director MBChB Deputy Head of Manchester Medical School. Prof Corfield will explain some of the changes in UG education
There will also be a variety of workshops on the changes to the programme and on medical education issues more generally.
Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.
Dr Don Bradley, the conference organiser commented: ‘This conference is a milestone for Manchester Medical School. We are fortunate that Prof Pat Croskerry, a leading world authority on clinical reasoning, will be a key speaker at the conference. There will be lots of opportunity to discuss the programme changes in detail at the various workshops. It should be a great day so I would encourage early enrolment. Don’t miss out on this rich programme in medical education.’
