OSU-CHS Medsation conference focus is on curriculum revision

TULSA – A panel of nationally known curriculum and medical education speakers highlight the first  OSU Center for Health Sciences’  Medsation medical education conference in Tulsa.

The program is offered on two days, Aug. 3 or Aug. 4, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at OSU-CHS, 1111 W. 17th Street.

Medsation is defined as “an event causing great interest and excitement in medical education.” One of the goals of Medsation is to get educators excited about curriculum revision, change and new ways of teaching and training students.  

“The entire program is being repeated on the second day to allow clinical staff the opportunity to keep clinics running and enable a portion of their staff to train each day,” said Machelle Davison, director of the OSU-CHS office of educational development.

Medsation offers education and information related to curriculum revision, educational theory, practical tips and techniques for integration, microteaching and/or bedside teaching, one-minute preceptor and facilitation. Both basic science and clinical science topics are included. The conference offers seven hours of Category 2B continuing medical education.
