Snowball symposium n°1

Tuesday 18th of Oct 2022– 5-7 pm

Title: “How to become a good GP/FM teacher in the digital era”

Summary of content:

This 2 hour online skills-building workshop is designed for teachers in general practice/family medicine who have had to adapt to a great number of technological challenges over the last 3 years. The goals are to discuss and share virtual/hybrid teaching experiences with other European trainers and to define the role of technology in teaching. We will discuss a new concept in designing blended training sessions in the future so that we as trainers continue to prepare competent doctors in GP/FM from student to CME and faculty development levels.
