Assessing competence in clinical training
Prof Ron Epstein will deliver the opening keynote focusing, at a systems level, on how we construct an assessment system, looking at what research tells us, and what dilemmas are currently being debated - can people really self-assess? What is the role of feedback in evaluation? Prof Epstein will also deliver a workshop as part of the program.
Thursday 8 September, 9:30am Generation X - maturing like a fine red wine!!!
This plenary session will bring together five practising GPs who were registrars in 2003 to highlight the many and varied career paths of GP registrars. Some of these doctors are now taking on leadership roles as supervisors, educators and academics while they balance family and lifestyle choices. They will tell us what they are doing, why they love doing it and who empowered them or what inspired them to do it.

Dr Steve Hambleton, President of the AMA, together with Dr Marlene Drysdale, GPET Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Adviser, Southern GP Training Cultural Educator, and Head of Indigenous Health at Monash University, will deliver the Convention closing plenary. This closing session will use a “Talking Heads” approach to create a spontaneous reflection on this year’s Convention – what happened and what can we do about it when we get home? Listen as our two speakers share their broad experience and relate to our issues and ideas.
