In accordance with the coming up OSJSM curriculum, the topics for the workshop are: Teaching and Evaluation at the Bedside, Teaching in the Community, Challenges with Learners and Planning and Delivering OSCE.

The UO professors have rich experience in teaching. Using different delivery methods such as group discussion, role play, etc., the classroom interaction was fantastic. Employing online equipment, the OSCE session was given remotely from Ottawa by Dr. CHAN who shared his experience in the planning and delivery of OSCE and answered the professors’ questions.

  The workshop was a great success and fruitful. The participating teachers came home with a lot of new thoughts and learnings. They got a deeper view of clinical medical education and really appreciated the UO professors’ teaching attitude.
