MEDR930ASeminars and Conferences
Seminars and conferences represent both a learning and assessment tool knowing that the theoretical education of the resident remains mostly a personal work that begins with reading books and articles, preparing conferences and is ongoing with continuing medical education and self­learning (erudition). During development, the “apprentice doctors” must initially attend and listen to their elders, then submit records to the staff, then present lectures to peers and seniors locally (hospital) and in a local congress and finally in an international congress. In parallel and concerning teaching, it begins with clinical teaching to the youngest and finishes during university courses.
