Learning Science 101: Engaging and Educating Today's Healthcare Professionals

Wednesday, July 28, 2021 2:00pm - 3:00pm EDT

Success in healthcare relies upon delivering the most up-to-date clinical knowledge to healthcare providers and ensuring that knowledge is retained and reinforced to optimize the outcome that matters most—patient care. With medical knowledge growing each day, how can we efficiently continue to educate today’s healthcare professionals? Delivering job-critical content in minutes a day, microlearning has become the most promising learning strategy for educating today’s learners. It has been clinically proven across nearly every discipline of medicine. During this webinar, Jason Weinberger, a board-certified surgeon and critical care intensivist, will discuss how microlearning principles can be used to overcome current challenges in medical education.

He is also the founder and CEO of ABSITE Quest, a microlearning platform that enables busy general surgery residents and students to study smarter and faster daily. After successfully educating thousands of trainees in preparation for the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination (ABSITE), he will share insights about how best to engage and educate today’s healthcare professionals:

  • Microlearning.An overall emphasis on breaking information down with repetition, practice, and reinforcement over time to increase knowledge retention, proficiency, and long-term behavior change in ways other learning methods simply can’t.
  • The Testing Effect.A continuous and active learning experience is most effective by frequently testing, challenging, and questioning individuals while giving immediate feedback and measuring proficiency.
  • Learner Engagement.Knowledge is retained only if learners are continually engaged and motivated to learn. Like a good game, content needs to be easily accessible, well curated, and maintain learners’ attention to be optimally retained.
