“This was much more than a bronchoscopy training course. It was more like a psychologic catharsis.”  
Spencer Camargo, MD, Brazil

Train-the-Trainers programs are specifically designed for educators:
– Learn how to use assessment tools and checklists
– Practice public speaking and learn how to best teach small groups
– Practice communication skills and giving positive reinforcement
– Learn how to teach using a step-by-step technique
– Learn and practice how to conduct case-based discussions.
– Learn about and debate different educational philosophies
– Design and implement a learner-centric curriculum.

“There are no accidents in this course. Every interaction is aimed at changing how you think about the teacher-student relationship. It was inspiring, motivational, and almost revolutionary in the way it affected my approach to training!”  
Silvia Quadrelli MD, Ph.D. (Master instructor)
