The secret to reaching doctors? Meaningful engagement

Medical education vs. medical information

Medical education involves a lot more than giving doctors access to static medical information at face-to-face events or online. If the goals of modern medical education are to bolster competence, increase knowledge and inspire changes in clinical practice, then learning experiences must have a lasting and meaningful effect on healthcare professionals.

Achieving meaning is a key tenet of Transformational Learning. Knowledge gained through meaningful learning allows healthcare professionals to be fully engaged in their own educational process so that they understand how all the pieces of a concept fit together.

Education built for learner engagement

EXCEMED curricula are presented in a variety of formats, from large-scale international conferences to regional workshops, to hands-on training. In each context, educational experiences are personalized, interactive and produce measurable outcomes, including a view to changes in daily clinical practice.

Educational design that prioritizes interaction is key for facilitating learner engagement. EXCEMED focuses on:

  • encouraging reflection on clinical practice
  • giving the opportunity to put skills into practice
  • allowing learners direct access to faculty
  • helping learners see the difference between current practice and standards yet to be achieved
  • analyzing measureable outcomes among learners

Have a look at some examples of how EXCEMED strives to give healthcare professionals meaningful learning experiences through programmes and resources:

GENERAL MEDICINE
