A significant portion of participant time is spent in supportive small groups working on skills and personal awareness, which are referred to as learning groups. Different learning groups use specific techniques to increase skills and personal awareness: some use narrative medicine, some use a case-based approach similar to Balint groups, and some integrate more than one technique. Participants choose their preferred group style. There is a faculty:learner ratio of ~1:7. Small groups are usually inter-professional. There is also opportunity for intact teams to participate together and improve their team communication. Additional descriptions of the types of learning groups can be found here.

Workshops are structured as tracks consisting of three 2-hour sessions. Because the workshop content builds on previous sessions, it is strongly recommended that participants select one track to attend for the duration of the course. We realize it can me challenging to select just one track, but participants will get access to the materials shared in all of the tracks and there are plenty of opportunities for cross-talk with others who are attending different tracks. Workshops include presentations, as well as active skills practice in the form of role-plays and many times as small group break outs. Tracks include: Relationship-centered Communication, Interprofessional Teams, Coaching, Conflict Resolution and Negotiation, and Shared Decision Making.
