Time & Location

About The Event
Ever been curious about the kind of heartsink cases and dilemmas primary care doctors face (which aren't conventionally taught in medical school) and how they manage them?
Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes during Covid vaccination ops and sporting events, and how medical teams function to support such events?
What are the difficult, but important psychosocial problems that primary care physicians face that we're not aware of in medical school, and how do they tackle them?
psst... these tips may come in handy during exams as well - Don't miss out! 😉
The Family Medicine SIG proudly presents to you the second edition of our skills series - Caught Not Taught 2: Family Medicine Skills Workshop
