Hands-on workshops


Speakers and trainers:
Prof. Jill Rudkowski, Prof. Nishma Singhal (McMaster University, Canada)
Max. number of participants: 20
free of charge
Eligible participants: Physicians and medical learnes
Duration: 2 hours (30 min presentation and 90 minutes case-based learning)

Rationale: Assessing and addressing professionalism can feel subjective. Using an established framework can enable an objective measure which benefits both the assessor and the learner being assessed. It can also help inform specific remediation strategies.

Content: The session will start with an overview of professionalism and why it is relevant as part of a formal learner assessment process. We will introduce the Professionalism in Practice (PIP) framework developed and used at McMaster and apply it to case-based learner scenarios. Participants will be able to practice using the framework and guided through implementing remediation strategies for commonly encountered learner professionalism issues.


  • Discuss challenges in addressing professionalism in the context of medical learners
  • Review the McMaster Professionalism in Practice framework
  • Apply the PIP framework to cases of student professionalism concerns in pre-clinical and clinical training
  • Discuss approaches to remediation for students with professionalism difficulties


Speakers and trainers:
Anna Żądło, MEd in Health Promotion and Sociotherapy, MSc in Public Health, BA in Emergency Medicine (Paramedic).

Ian Perera is a resident physician at the University Hospital in Cracow and a lecturer in the Department of Medical Education at Jagiellonian University. He has BSc in Biology and Life Sciences at McGill University and MD from Jagiellonian University

Max. number of participants: 12
free of charge
Eligible participants: (students / doctors or both) both
Duration: 90 minutes

Rationale: Teaching medicine in English is a widespread practice. For both teachers and students English is often a second language. There is a demand that future healthcare professionals acquire the knowledge and skills needed to promote global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity, as suggested by the Sustainable Development Goals. Evidence-based scholarship of teaching and learning practices for the international classroom shows that the CLIL approach (recommended by the European Commission) is an excellent solution to emerging challenges.

Content: Workshop including discussion, sharing of experience and enrichment activities on CLIL in medical education.


  • What happens to our brain when we learn through a second language?
  • How does CLIL support medical education?
  • How CLIL works at medical universities in Hungary, Poland and Sweden? Experience gathered the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project.
  • How to adapt a course material to the CLIL methodology?


Speakers and trainers:
Prof. Roman Jaeschke (McMaster University, Canada)
Max. number of participants: 12
free of charge
Eligible participants: Physicians and students
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Rationale: Current clinical practice is frequently guided by the results of clinical trials. Ability to look for and identify elements of reporting of clinical trials which may distort their real clinical meaning is relevant for clinicians and policy makers.

Content: This workshop will use clinical examples to explore issues choosing appropriate outcomes, reporting relative and absolute effects of treatments, generalizing results, and moving from evidence to action.

Objectives: To gain skills in assessing the reporting of key elements of planning, conducting and reporting of clinical trials in order to be able to independently judge their clinical relevance and applicability.
