Workshop: Lipidomics Introduction

Date/Time
04 Apr
Venue
NUS, Centre for Life Sciences (CeLS)
Description

Lipids is one of the four big classes of biomolecules. They have a large variety of biological functions, from structural to signalling to storage. Besides lipid-based diseases, lipid and lipid metabolism dysfunctions have also been implicated in other conditions such as cancers, diabetes, infectious diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders. Recent advancements in technology has allowed us to better extract and study lipids, and this has led to the emergence of the field of lipidomics.

Through lectures and discussions, this course will take participants through mass spectrometry types and applications, examples of ongoing research, bioinformatics and data analysis and study design.

Workshop: Learning Outcomes and Entrustable Professional Activities (EPA)

Date/Time
05 Apr, 9:00 am
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall 1
Description

Today, an outcome-based education (OBE) model is strongly advocated for the design and delivery of 21st century health professional curriculum: the professional competencies required for future practice are defined in terms of the intended learning outcomes (i.e. the knowledge, skills, attitudes) formulated from and aligned to the end-product capability (i.e. the desired attributes of the end-product) identified. Learners need to provide evidence of having acquired the desired professional competencies by passing examinations which use assessment tools (e.g. MEQs, OSCEs) designed for such a purpose.

However, in the clinical setting (i.e. in the work environment), it is recommended that learners need to show evidence that they have acquired desired professional competencies by independently performing a given set of professional tasks, after a period of learning under supervision. Such ‘professional tasks’ performed by the learner independently are referred to as the ‘Entrustable Professional Activities (EPAs). Workplace-based assessments tools (e.g. Mini-CEX, DOPS) should be used for assessing EPAs.

3rd Congress of The Society of Endometriosis and Uterine Disorders

Date/Time
06 Apr - 08 Apr
Venue
Description

The theme for the 2017 Congress is “Fibroids and Uterine Bleeding: Unlocking the Issues”. Up to a third of women have fibroids and many more have some form of abnormal uterine bleeding during their lifetime. It is an appropriate opportunity for us to unlock the issues and controversies and we have the privilege to host internationally renowned speakers known for their expertise at this meeting.

Not forgetting the ideals of our first two Congresses, we will still continue to feature both Endometriosis and Adenomyosis in the scientific program. The width, breadth and depth of the topics to be discussed, with live surgeries, key note lectures, plenaries, debates, workshops, National sessions etc, will certainly make this a very exciting Congress for its high level scientific content.

Workshop: Teaching & Learning Strategies for Healthcare Professionals in the New Millenium

Date/Time
06 Apr, 9:00 am
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall 1
Description

The education of medical / healthcare professionals today must be able to meet the challenges, demands and expectations of their patients in the 21st century. Educational paradigms have changed significantly over the years to match the requirements of a “cognitive age” in a globalised, knowledge-based economy, and also be consistent with current understanding of how people learn. The changing educational paradigms will impact strongly on the educational preparation of medical / healthcare professionals.
