In the age of virtual learning, it is more important than ever to ensure students have access to education and feel motivated and supported to learn.

Whether contending with burnout or searching for best practices for test preparation, LAS Medical Coaches are highly trained to ready to support individual learning goals, faculty training, and departmental standards.
Curriculum Development + Training the Trainer
LAS designs and implements interactive training, supervision, and test prep workshops for small and large groups. LAS specializes in training and collaborating with faculty, clinicians, and wellness centers.
The LAS Curriculum includes clear learning objectives, specified resources, workflow examples, and evidence-based strategies with measurable outcomes. LAS Trainings can “stand-alone” or as part of a series. Design, implementation, and support are customized and include training materials for professional development, individual education plans, and coursework.
LAS Consulting Services begin with an initial stakeholder’s meeting to identify goals and expectations, followed by a needs assessment to clarify scope of work. LAS then provides a written proposal with specified deliverables, resources, measurable outcomes, timeline, and fees. Implementation is available on-site, online, or at an off-site retreat.
