The participants engaged in lively discussions with the course faculty, and the classic method of using flash cards during the question and answer session was nostalgic for the more experienced participants. The Education Day ended on a high note with role-play sessions, with the participants taking the opportunity to exercise their skills in giving effective feedback in several scenarios.

The Academic Grand Round Plus (AGR+) was conceived as an enhanced instalment of the monthly Academic Grand Rounds. Themed as "The Path", the AGR+ aimed to familiarise residents, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals in the RADSC ACP with the possible career pathways available to them, and the support that they could receive along the way.

The programme also included a review of the ACP events and achievements in 2015, plans and activities for the upcoming year, and lastly a residents-led game segment to spice up the evening! The event provided an enriching opportunity for the members of the ACP to interact with colleagues with common professional interests, to share their aspirations and experiences and to plan their future career pathways.
