In this hands-on session at AMEE, educators from Japan, France, and Portugal will share their experiences on how to develop curiosity, flexibility, and open-mindedness in students, which are key to forming excellent professionals. Join to listen to valuable intakes from:

  • Ichiro Kaneko (MD. Ph.D.) from the Teikyo University School of Medicine, Japan
  • José Miguel Padilha (RN, CRRN, MScN, PhD.) from the Nursing School of Porto, Portugal
  • Baptiste Balança (MD. Ph.D.) from Lyon Center for Teaching by Simulation in Health, France

Critical thinking is vital to any kind of success. 

By the end of the workshop, you will understand how critical thinking influences healthcare education by encouraging reflective and independent thinking to guide current and future healthcare professionals through the hundreds of decisions that are made throughout a clinical situation. Raising the quality of students, educators, and professionals’ critical thinking can result in more effective problem-solving, creativity, and rational decision-making. All of which have the potential to impact the quality of our teaching, learning, and clinical practice.

Studies suggest that students become remarkably better problem-solvers when taught to identify relevant information, construct and recognize valid deductive arguments, test hypotheses and recognize common reasoning fallacies. The Body Interact platform allows an integrated, dynamic, and engaging approach to digital learning with virtual patients.
