West Midlands Communications Course Birmingham

Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Clinical Skills lab
Mindelsohn Way,
B15 2TH 

Once again we have been asked to organise the extremely popular communications course. Professional actors are being used to simulate real examples of clinical photographic situations where good communication skills would be very useful.

This course always receives great reviews and is an excellent way of learning new skills in a relaxed and friendly environment. Delegates with all levels of previous experience are catered for.

The courses will be run from 09.30 – 16.30 and will include lunch. It is an interactive / roleplay course where you will play yourself. If you would like to bring your own photographic kit, you are most welcome, but equipment will be available if needed. However the objectives of the course are centred around communication not photography.

The course was set up for staff working in the West Midlands however there are a few places available on each course for those working outside this area, these will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The cost is £150.
