Faculty Development

Intensive 4-day train-the-trainer faculty development program for clinicians who want to become VitalTalk faculty. FAQ

An intensive four-day training separated into two sessions. The first two-day workshop will give you a deep preparation for using core skills in your own practice. Then, 3-6 months later, after you have practiced your new skills and have had time to reflect on them, you will return for a second two-day workshop that teaches you how to run your own Mastering Tough Conversations programs in your institution (both sessions mandatory to graduate).
