Entrustable Professional Activities: the magic bullet in medical education?

Presenters: Marjel van Dam, University Medical Center, Utrecht and Marije Hennus, Wilhelmina Children's Hospital Utrecht, The Netherlands.
Autumn Webinar Series 2019/2020

Summary:  Entrustable professional activities (EPAs) are hip and happening in medical education. But are they here to stay? After briefly introducing ourselves, we will discuss the current role of EPAs in medical education. Drawing from our personal experience with developing, implementing and using EPAs in (post graduate) medical education, we will focus how to use EPAs and touch upon their do’s and don’t’s. Furthermore, we will elaborate on EPAs as either a formative or summative way to assess students and discuss whether EPAs should replace or rather be complementary to existing assessments. Finally, we will share our tips and tricks. All this will be presented in a most interactive setting.

Medical Humanities: A way to transform society

Presenter: Jonathan McFarland, Sechenov University Moscow
Autumn Webinar Series 2019/2020

Summary: The humanities are now very topical in medical education; for instance,  in the last AMEE Conference there was a whole theme dedicated to them. More and more understand that the humanities are needed to restore balance to an increasingly scientific and technologically orientated curricula. The practice of medicine is however to do with people, and the humanities are necessary to help health professionals deal with people's preoccupations, worries and concerns.
Taking this as a starting point the main concern of this webinar will be how the (re)introduction of the humanities into medical education and practice can help not only on an individual and personal level (i.e. the Doctor -patient relationship) but also on a wider societal and global level. How the humanities are needed to help change and transform society at this critical and complicated moment.
