Webinar: Supporting your registrar to ‘Study Smarter Not Harder’

Product Description

This webinar will assist supervisors in supporting their registrars to develop an effective learning plan and integrate evidence-based study strategies into their in-practice teaching. During this session we will discuss both ineffective and effective evidence-based study strategies which can be incorporated into informal and formal in practice teaching methods.

General Practice training in Australia is based on an apprenticeship model and supervisors are well placed to provide ongoing coaching for registrars while preparing for their summative exams. Registrars have often developed study habits which may have worked in medical school but are often counterproductive and don’t lead to long term retention of knowledge and mastery. During this session we will discuss both ineffective and effective evidence-based study strategies to assist them with this.
