Register Now for the 5th Annual Stanford 25 Skills Symposium

In 2015, we hosted the first-ever Stanford 25 Skills Symposium. This November will mark the event’s five-year anniversary, and we remain passionate about our commitment to advancing physical exam skills, fostering clinical teaching abilities and cultivating a culture of bedside medicine. The year’s two-day conference will bring together a community of like-minded practitioners who are eager to develop these competencies and share their knowledge with students.

Through a series of lectures, live demonstrations, group breakout sessions and hands-on workshops, our 5th Annual Skills Symposium will focus on neurology exam technique, sports medicine physical exam skills, point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) and the famous 5-Minute Bedside Moment. The program features presentations by event chairs Abraham Verghese on the physical exam; John Kugler on teaching medicine today; and Sonoo Thadaney on modeling the “5-minute moment” to engage learners at the bedside. We are also excited to host a poster session offering attendees the opportunity to present research and clinical cases related to bedside medicine and physical examination.

In an age where artificial intelligence and machine learning are transforming medicine, critical pieces of bedside medicine--physical exam skills, physician presence and human connection--must remain a priority. We will explore ways technology can be adopted to not only keep physicians at the patient bedside but to complement physicians’ skills. The latest generation of POCUS is one example, and this technology will be at the forefront of conversation at this year’s event.

Join us on November 1 and 2 as we come together to cultivate and grow bedside medicine. Registration is now open—please click here for more information!
