Teaching on the ward

Happy Easter to you all!

This week’s post comes in the form of a recommendation to a self-directed learning guide created by Dr Deborah Gill, an expert in medical education, on the challenges that each clinical learning environment takes and some further general advice. She makes some excellent points about the how teaching in the clinical environment is far better than the classroom alongside some worrying statistics about the percentage of medical student teaching time spent on the wards (5%).

There are also some excellent points which encourage one to reflect on their own development as a medical educator. This article is definitely worth a read and can be accessed at http://www.faculty.londondeanery.ac.uk/e-learning/explore-further/teaching_and_learning_at_the_bedside.pdf.

Why not read the article and reflect on it in your own e-portfolio?
