Medical education leader to present at Grand Rounds

Jeffrey G. Wiese, MD

Emory’s Academy of Medical Educators invites you to join us at Medicine Grand Rounds on Tuesday, January 10 at noon in the Emory University Hospital Auditorium (2E) for “It’s Not What You Think,” presented by renowned medical educator Jeffrey G. Wiese, MD (Tulane).

In addition, you are invited to join Dr. Wiese for an informal discussion on key topics in education (e.g., effective bedside teaching, teaching difficult learners) on Tuesday from 3-4:30 p.m. in EUH, Suite H-153. On Wednesday, January 11, he will serve as the keynote speaker and lead several workshops at the Department of Medicine’s “Learning to Be Better Teachers” seminar.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify strategies to change the educational culture by optimizing shared roles, goals, expectations and beliefs.
  2. Recognize the role the adaptive unconscious plays in physician performance, and identify strategies to optimize learner performance through directed reflection.
  3. Recognize how “finite” thinking leads to work-arounds and demotivates learners from engaging in team-based care.
  4. Identify strategies to improve the effectiveness of feedback in augmenting learner performance.
