From online courses to in-person workshops, we offer multiple entry points for busy clinicians to embark on our learning path.
We value the health and well-being of our faculty, staff, and VitalTalk learning community. Please know that we are closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation.
At this time VitalTalk is planning to postpone any course involving participant or faculty travel for March through April 2020 courses. We will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions about courses beyond April 2020 in the coming weeks.
If you are registered to attend a VitalTalk course this spring, please watch for further details about course specific postponements.

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).
