State of the Art Conferences
SOA's are conferences attended by select groups of specialists, who, after undergoing a facilitator training
and workshop, serve to facilitate UMED's outreach seminars. The representative faculty from leading foreign and local medical teaching
institutions serves as key speakers on the appropriate subjects for the State of the Art Conferences. Through the SOA's, UMED is able to
provide its members the latest medical information on selected topics.
UMED conducts problem-based discussion in small interactive groups that encourage participation to optimize learning
through outreach conferences. The interactive sessions are led by and moderated by specialist-facilitators primarily trained for this purpose.
Module workbooks on different topics serve as springboard for discussion and also serve later as a handy reference in the doctor's office.
Faculty Development Activities
UMED provides its circle of mentors trainings and workshops that will enhance the skills as a facilitator
and as a medical practitioner.
