Videos

  • The Fundamental Principles videos are more instructional in nature and meant to introduce viewers to basic concepts in communication skills.
  • The Managing Difficult Communication videos are suitable not only for learning concepts and techniques but also for group discussion or use as "stimulus tapes" to promote reflective learning (See On Being An Oncologist).
  • The ACE Lecture Series link contains videos of national/international experts in the field of clinical communication skills.  If you enter through this link there will be no CME or RME awarded.  You must enter through the CME and RME link or the RME link to receive credit.
  • The Video Library of Clinical Communication Skills also does not award continuing education credit and is available for those who want to view the videos without credit.
  • The For Patients & Families link was created for patients, families, and caregivers.
  • Anyone wishing a copy of the videos may download or subscribe to the videos at the I*CARE section on MD Anderson on iTunes U. (Link will open in iTunes; you must have iTunes software (a free download from Apple) installed to launch this link. Pages will open in a new browser window.)

On Being An Oncologist

MD Anderson Video Player Information  Top of Page

Note: The streaming video requires a high-speed internet connection (DSL, cable or LAN). If your connection is by dial-up modem, internet viewing will not be satisfactory. If the video pauses, it will start up again shortly. This is usually caused by a slow internet connection. Adobe Flash Player version 11.0 or above is required to be installed for Flash videos.
