The Academy at Harvard Medical School

Please join us to explore the challenge of uncertainty in the practice and teaching of medicine throughout the medical education continuum. 

Overall Program Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the role of uncertainty in clinical reasoning;
  • Explain how considerations of uncertainty are critical to teaching high-value care;
  • Describe strategies for teaching our learners how to communicate uncertainty to patients;
  • Determine the developmentally appropriate use of uncertainty when teaching learners from novice to expert.

Medical students are especially encouraged to attend a workshop run for, and by, medical students addressing uncertainty and clinical medicine from a student's perspective.
