The purpose of this course is to improve feedback, clinical teaching, and assessment of clinical skills.
Clinical teaching takes place in the clinical setting for health professions. Clinical teachers have the challenging and meaningful responsibility to convey the bedside art and science of medical practice. This course will provide clinicians with the tools to improve their clinical teaching and assessment practices. This course provides instruction and experience for educating members of the health professions an asynchronous way to obtain, expand, and improve their clinical teaching skills. While many courses seek to build knowledge and knowledge application, this course will extend the application to performance- based skills. These skills can be applied within their own professional context, with a variety of learners, extending across many stages. We will ask you go out and apply the skills you are learning and then come back and reflect discuss with classmates. Course Objectives

UNIT 5 - THE BRIEFING, INTER-CASE OR INTRA-OPERATIVE TEACHING, DEBRIEFING (BID) MODEL FOR CLINICAL TEACHING
The objectives for this module are that after you actively engage in the activities, you will be able to: 1. Describe the basic theoretical underpinnings of the BID model. 2. Develop a briefing focused on a learning objective 3. Perform intra-encounter teaching focused on the learning objective 4. Perform a short debriefing focused on the learning objective Note: while this model was developed for the operating room, you will find that it applies to any clinical setting. In each encounter think about first working with learner to set her objectives, then teaching during the clinical encounter and finally providing feedback or debriefing.

Across the world more than 420 million people are living with diabetes. Two thirds of these have not yet been diagnosed. When discovered late or managed incorrectly, diabetes can damage your heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves, leading to disability and premature death. In fact, more people are dying of diabetes related diseases than of diseases as HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. This course will provide you with an introduction to the most recent research in the field of prevention and treatment of diabetes as well as a broader understanding of the situation in different communities, rich and poor, across the world, where diabetes threatens public health.
Understand new and established genomic sequencing technologies, and how to apply them in clinical practice. Powerful new technologies have been driving forward immense and exciting changes in clinical practice.
This course provides those involved in educating members of the health professions an asynchronous, interdisciplinary, and interactive way to obtain, expand, and improve their teaching skills. These skills can then be applied within their own professional context, with a variety of learners, extending across many stages.

Learn how whole genome sequencing works and what it could mean for the future of healthcare with this free online course. Whole genome sequencing is a relatively new technology that allows us to ‘read’ a person’s or organism’s entire genetic code. But how does it work and what does it mean for all of us? How do scientists begin to make sense of the vast amount of information that whole genome sequencing provides? And what does this new technology mean for the future of healthcare and personalised medicine?
