The Center for Medical Simulation’s online Feedback Course provides a way for health profession educators, leaders, administrators, or health related practitioners who give feedback in healthcare settings to develop their feedback skills. Course participants meet in a 2-3 hour class video conference 6 times over a 7-week span with 1 midterm break between either course week 3, 4, or 5. Participants complete an additional 3-6 hours of preparation and practice time course work per week at a time most convenient to them.
NOTE: The course runs October 4 – November 19, 2021 (7 weeks) with a break during the week of October 25-29, 2021.

You may want to purchase or search for the books required for this course. We understand that there are free PDFs available on the web. While the work required for each of these books will take about 15 minutes, we recommend reading the entire book at your leisure prior to the first class (as completely optional reading).
All materials and course interactions will occur online to reach participants from different areas of the world. There are several technology requirements. The course uses a team collaboration application that syncs to mobile devices and computers for convenience. Participants will receive training on the application with activities to orient the participants to each other and the application prior to the start of the course. The application will serve as the platform for learning, communications, and sharing materials to foster a community of practice that can continue beyond the course. In order to participate, each person must have:
Each individual – even those participants who are from the same institution – needs his or her own computer and computer headset (microphone and earphones).
