Event description

Description

Registration is open for VitalTalk's Bay Area Regional Faculty Development course! This course will take place in two sessions in February and May 2019! This is the same course as the course we offer in Aspen, we are simply starting to provide the course in more regional locations! Please thoroughly read the information below and on our FAQ page before registering.

Course Dates:

Session 1: 02/22/2019 – 02/23/2019

Session 2: 05/31/2019 – 06/01/2019

Tuition: $4500 for both sessions (50% down payment of $2250 due upon registration)

Course Description: A unique train-the-trainer faculty development program for physicians and/or advance practice providers who are committed communication educators—and want to become VitalTalk faculty! The program involves a 2 day face-to-face workshop, distance learning, and a consolidation 2 day face-to-face workshop. You need to commit to the entire program to attend. Upon completion of the course, you’ll be ready to teach and host a 1 day Mastering Tough Conversations communication course that focuses on skills for early palliative care discussion and a late palliative care discussion (the ‘goals of care’ talk) using simulated patients. Also included in the course is a two year license agreement which allows you to receive the latest versions of our teaching maps, simulated patient cases and facilitation guides that won’t be available on our website. Finally, we encourage 2-person teams because the co-mentorship accelerates your development.

The course will take place in two separate two day course sessions to allow for optimized learning and practice between sessions.

Session 1: Arrive the evening of 02/21/2019, the immersive course will take place on 02/22/2019 and 02/23/2019. Depart anytime after the course concludes at 5:00pm on 02/23.

Session 2: Arrival in the evening of 5/30/2019, the course takes place 05/31/2019 – 06/01/2019. Depart any time after the course concludes at 5:00pm on 06/01.

Tuition Details: The total tuition is $4500 and includes both February and May sessions, plus distance learning. In addition to the in-person courses and distance learning, this tuition includes all course materials, a two year license agreement, course day breakfasts and lunches. 50% tuition is due upon registration for the course. Full tuition is due no later than 60 days prior to the course. We do have a strict cancellation policy outlined in the FAQs below. Please review this policy before signing up. * Note: Course participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging (we will provide information on a group rate for hotel rooms).
