From Great to Outstanding: Fire Up Your Medical Lectures

Friday, November 24
10:45 AM - 11:45 AM

"You need to give a talk on how to give a talk!" After hearing this over and over, this presentation was born. "Fire Up your Medical Lectures," which received outstanding feedback at OCFP ASA & CFPC FMF, will (1) provide an overview of published literature on what makes an effective medical lecture and what improves learning outcomes, (2) summarize pearls for best practices for use of visual aids and (3) review common presentation pitfalls and how to easily overcome them. Additionally, we will discuss (1) the presenter’s experiences in giving medical lectures and (2) the top negative and positive feedback items some conference speakers have received. Finally, through a facilitated discussion, participants will (1) share their own techniques to increase effectiveness of medical presentations and (2) learn from others’ techniques.
