In response to the emerging needs of our family medicine teachers, we are pleased to release Tips for Supervising Family Medicine Learners Providing Virtual Care. This timely resource is intended to help family medicine teachers and learners adjust to the new learning environment required of us during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Join your teaching colleagues on Thursday, April 9th, for a series of virtual peer discussion sessions to talk about your challenges, potential solutions and best practices for teaching in the current setting. We have set up a series of Zoom sessions throughout the day to accommodate various time zones and schedules. Please note that the session at noon is being offered in French only. Help us continue to build our supportive community of practice among family medicine teachers across Canada during this challenging time.
There’s no need to register for the session; just go to one of the links below at the time you would like to join. If you have any questions or technical issues, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Our moderators will introduce the new resource and then the session will largely take on a Q & A and discussion format to draw on the expertise of participants. Everyone is encouraged to turn on their cameras. Virtual meeting etiquette will be reviewed at the start of the session.
