While we acknowledge that when possible, our dynamic faculty generally require just-in-time learning delivered in flexible digital modalities, there are some content areas and competency goals that are most effectively addressed with a good old fashioned classroom setting. Accordingly, we continue to offer traditional workshops, and, increasingly, hybrid combinations of online and "off-line" options. 

What is the Difference Between a Traditional and a Hybrid Workshop?

Traditional Workshops via the Advance program are instructor or faculty-led, face-to-face, 90-minute offerings located at the Perelman School of Medicine or, in customized versions, at your department or division grand rounds or meetings. These sessions offer opportunities to network with colleagues, engage in lively discussion, and benefit from faculty/instructor expertise.

Hybrid Workshops offer added value and peer networking through building upon the traditional model with pre-workshop micro-learning, online discussion, and/or brief checks for prior knowledge to ensure face-to-face meetings are customized and highly efficient. Post-workshop follow-up may take a variety of forms, but are always designed for brevity and quick turn-around application.
