ATRIUM cordially invites all students to our “Medical Education and Small Group Teaching” session led by Dr Michael Ross, Lecturer in Medical Education and Co-Director of the MSc Clinical Education course. There is a growing emphasis on the ‘Doctor as a Teacher’ and, as doctors are encouraged more and more to be involved with education and teaching, there is increasing recognition of needing to teach medical students how to teach. This will be an interactive session where we will will discuss techniques of teaching effectively – this is sure to be an enlightening session for any student. Learn how to make your future (or even your first) tutorials or PALs the best they can be!

It was consists of a tutorial highlighting common themes and key points from the GMC documents, as well as advice on the best ways to prepare, with a few example questions to trigger discussion.

There will also be a mock SJT paper of 30 questions, which half of the students will sit this before the teaching, and half after, for comparison.
