Learn by Doing
Going to conferences can help but the learning is limited because its passive. My best learning happened in my fellowships in MSK and Neuro MRI. I learnt how to interpret a scan, what to look for and very importantly, what to ignore. Every small thing can become a worry if we don’t have the experience. They key to learning was having someone experienced sitting with me, who could teach, pick up my mistakes, answer my questions and give me the confidence to build on my work.
Often as trainees, particularly in Asia, we don’t have this opportunity and once we have graduated and start working, its very difficult to go back to a fellowship. We miss out.
Our aim is for you to go back to work on the day after the workshop and report the MRI scans on your list more confidently. Here is what we do. We start with a detailed and structured 1 Month Pre Workshop Review Programme with online dicom viewing, where you learn the important knowledge before you come to the workshop. Then a 2 day workshop, where you are guided to review hundreds of cases and can ask questions to work out how to come to a diagnosis rather than just recognise an image. Add to that a 1 month Post Workshop Review to help you remember what you have learnt. You learn by DOING, which is the most effective way to learn. Hear what some of our previous participants think about the workshops in the video on your right.
Our Onsite workshops for the remainder of 2020 have been postponed until next year due to the COVID…
