Joint Teaching Retreat

Monday, November 5, 2012

London, ON - The Department of Family Medicine and The Southwestern Ontario Medical Education Network (SWOMEN) at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University, hosted the fourth annual Joint Teaching Retreat at the Best Western Plus Lamplighter Inn on November 2nd and 3rd.

This year's theme was "The Future of Medical Education." The collaborative conference focused on Schulich Medicine & Dentistry's Distributed Medical Education (DME) platform and new emerging technologies in medical education.

The agenda included a variety of workshops, creating an enjoyable balance between learning and social opportunities.

Friday evening included dinner and entertainment. "From Broadway to Jazz" offered an unforgettable evening of terrific songs, great stories and lots of laughs from London's favourite Jazz/Musical Theatre stylists Rick Kish and Natalie Howard-Grant. Backed by the Marque Smith Trio, Rick and Natalie delivered a fabulous collection of great showstopper songs, humorous anecdotes and the world's best-loved jazz standards.

Dr. Stephen Wetmore, Chief/Chair of the Department of Family Medicine, kicked off the retreat by outlining his goals for the coming year in the Department of Family Medicine Annual General Meeting.
