ASME would like to introduce you to a new initiative which we have created. We hope this will provide you with the opportunity to engage with fellow ASME members and the wider medical education community.
We are delighted to announce the launch of ASMEBITESIZE
ASMEBITESIZE is an opportunity for you to discuss matters of interest and to disseminate areas of good practice and to support each other in these challenging times. We will be running a series of online "bitesize" events including podcasts, webinars, Q&As, journal editor sessions and so on. The series of short, concise, frequent and regular activities are being held from June to January. A whole world of opportunities for you to participate in and benefit from.
The first ASMEBITESIZE event will be on Monday 1st June. It will take the form of an audio podcast exploring some of the key challenges and opportunities of teaching medical students about video and audio consulting in the current Covid crisis and beyond. The short podcast will be available from the 1st of June in which ASME Chair Professor Sandra Nicholson will be interviewing Dr Graham Easton, GP and Professor of Communication Skills at Queen Mary University of London.
Until a few months ago, video consulting seemed like the future of doctor-patient interactions. Now it’s very much the present, and it’s here to stay. Doctors and health professionals of the future need to learn about video consulting, something potentially well-suited to our current online existence. But what do they need to know? How can we help them learn the skills? What are the tips and pitfalls for medical educators?
We have many further ASMEBITESIZE events planned, please keep an eye on Social Media #asmebitesize @ASMEOfficial, our website and your inbox for details of our planned BITESIZE events.
