3.    Brief Introduction to Workshop

 

Communication skills are an essential competence for an Indian Medical Graduate. So far, medical students have directly or indirectly imbibed these skills from observing communications by their teachers/role models. Not all role models offer the right exposure or tips to the student. It has long been realized that communication skills should not be restricted to being part of a ‘hidden curriculum’. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a few useful models of teaching communication skills.

 

4.    Who Should Attend?

 All Medical Faculty members, Administrators, Policy makers, MEU members, Curriculum Committee members   

5.    Intended Outcomes:

 

 Participants would be able to design a model curriculum for teaching communication skills in their area of work.
