Facilitator and Discussant Resources

Facilitators and Discussants play a very important role in Medical Education sessions at Learn Serve Lead, as well as the regional GEA meetings in the spring. Facilitators play an integral role in the sessions by keeping the speakers on time and the audience engaged in the material. Discussants provide another layer of analysis and help to put the research presented in the session in perspective within the medical education framework.

To support these objectives, we have created resources to help facilitators and discussants prepare for their roles:
