General description:

Training our members in student representation and medical education shapes not only the quality of our future doctors, but also the quality of healthcare.

But to continue to increase our impact not only towards our members at the General

Assemblies, this TOT will focus on empowering participants to innovate in medical education, work on developing their skills further and reignite the passion towards medical education that brings us all together.

A recent national situation analysis showed us that it is time to address the growing need to work on the capacity building of our TMET trainers.

We often forget the importance of empowering those who empower others. A.k.a. our

trainers.

This workshop aims to further develop our existing TMET trainers to create a new generation

of trainers equipped with everything new in the medical education world, ready to

innovate in medical education and most importantly: connected with their peers worldwide.
