10 taking increasing responsibilities regarding their own learning This program is designed for ambitious students who are willing to be actively engaged in their education processtaking increasing responsibilities regarding their own learningPrerequisites of acceptance into the program
11 The EMP aims to prepare a medical graduate who is… Motivated life long learnerEquipped with adequate integrated knowledge, professional and generic skillsAcquainted with the modern health care facilities and problemsAcquired the bases of professional attitudeReady to engage as an active member of the health care provider teamThe EMP aims o prepare a medical graduate;Motivated life long learnerEquipped with the adequate integrated knowledge, professional and generic skillsAcquainted with the modern health care facilities and problemsAcquired the bases of professional attitudeReady to engage as an active member of the health care provider team
12 Educational concepts underpinning the program Help students to form their own mental networkActive engagement of students in their own learningEncouraging group activitiesEarly clinical exposureLearning by DoingActive engagement of students in their own learning (given increasing learning responsibilities with proper follow up and monitoring)Help students to form their own mental network by continuously connecting related informationEncouraging group activities (explore the power of the group), while respecting individuality and personal creativityEarly clinical exposureLearning by Doing
13 We Have A Strategy To Develop A Motivated, Life Long Learner? Engage him/her in the educational sessionText books use mentoring & guidanceProvide a variety of learning activities for students with different learning stylesMonitoring students’ progress1. Engage him/her in the educational session by:Providing pre-activity readingsIn-session engagement (structured lecture, students’ interaction)Post session assignment & follow-up2. Text books use mentoring & guidance3. Monitor students’ progressFollow-up small group interactive sessionsTeam based learning sessionsFormative assessmentContinuous assessment4. Provide a variety of learning activities for students with different learning styles
14 Contact hours will be used to Explain global concepts and important relations,Give examples to apply knowledge gainedEngage students actively within the learning activityStimulate students to explore more knowledge on their own (Directed self learning)Assessing that students are engaged in the educational activities assignedCorrect students misconceptionNO more poon-feeding..the instructor assumes the role of a facilitatorFacilitators are expected NOT to waste contact hours providing information that can be gained easily by students if they were instructed to do so
15 Our Instructors are trained to… Be open mindedMentor and guideAccept new ideasGenerate new ideasCooperate with each othersBe an integral part of the whole pictureThey are trained to facilitate this inquiry based learning atmosphere
16 Its is hoped that…The Extended Modular Program would lead the advancement of medical education, not only in Ain Shams Faculty of Medicine but also in the whole region through a holistic vision of the medical graduate attributes suitable to face the medical practice challenges of the present and future.And as stated in our vision for the future
