Interested in updates in education and training?

If you’re looking for updates in education and training…. Then BACO 2018 is for you

Education and training is the business of every ENT surgeon.  From the trainees trying to maximize their training, to the programme directors and educational and clinical supervisors delivering it.  Understanding the latest in educational developments can be squeezed by clinical pressures and the need to keep up to date clinically, but BACO 2018 brings the latest developments in education together with relevant and accessible sessions.

On Wednesday the E-learning for ENT session E-lefENT demonstrates the latest educational resources and technology in e-learning and is a window on the future of education.  An instructional session on the Medical Training Initiative explains how this important development works for the trainees filling the role and the sponsors.

On Thursday, the Specialist Advisory Committee and Training Programme Director session offers a fascinating insight into how artificial intelligence may play a role in future working, and there are explorations of the new surgical curriculum and run through training.  The student and foundation doctor session gives insight into research in training, and an overview of life as an ENT trainee- the good, the bad and the ugly.

On Friday, a different perspective can be achieved by attending the session on education and training in India, which also provides information on fellowships across a range of subspecialties.  The afternoon session on novel techniques in education has thought provoking talks on technology, engagement and embracing less than full time training.


These are expert education updates every ENT surgeon can’t afford to miss.
