On June 22, Prof.dr. Michiel van Agtmael held his inaugural lecture on clinical pharmacology and pharmacotherapy education at the VU University in Amsterdam. His main conclusion was that prescribing is a complex process and that undergraduate education in prescribing during should be improved. To this end, he argues that innovative teaching methods should be developed and implemented in the medical curriculum. Watch a part of the lecture here
On the same day, a symposium entitled 'Teaching and learning out of a box' was organised. Teams had to compete with each other to design the most innovative teaching method for learning prescribing. One team won the prize with their idea of a game 'Escape Room for prescribing'.
