About the Event

Advanced Professional Skills Workshop

Week  1 (November 2nd): How to Approach Microaggressions - The goal of this  session will be to help people learn how to deal with and/or address  micro aggressions in a professional environment. Whether these instances  take place against you or someone you know. We will also focus on not  being the person these micro aggressions come from. We welcome the  Social Justice in Medicine Club from WAUSM as they lead this session!

Week  2 (November 8th): 1st Workshop Recap – This session will be a  culmination of everything attendees learned over the summer, so let’s  have fun and pull from our memory!

Week  3 (November 16th): The Basics of Debate – We will use this session to  educate attendees on the primary tenets of debate so that you can be  well-prepared whenever you are put into a situation where you may need  to defend your position! Be ready to work on an assignment to prepare  for the following session!

Week  4 (November 30th): Let’s Debate! – The goal of this session will allow  everyone the opportunity to use the skills learned in the previous week  and put them to use in a simulated debate!

Week  5 (December 7th): Primary Speech Skills – Attendees will be given the  tools necessary to learn how to be comfortable speaking in front of a  group and project confidence and competence! Be prepared to write a  speech that will be used in the final session!

Week  6 (December 14th): To Speak or Not to Speak, that is the Question… or  is it? – Our final session of the Advanced Professional Skills Workshop  gives all attendees the chance to practice their speech skills and talk  on a prepared topic chosen the week prior. This is a low-stakes  environment, and we will have plenty of support from the facilitator and  everyone who comes!
