We’ve taken a detour from styles of teaching to look at how to lead a teaching session. It is not often that we are  “leading” a team though I can probably tell you the ward of all the team’s patients better than the consultant. However there may be a time, however short, that you are. Common examples are teaching, medical emergencies (until the other staff arrive) and when you have medical students.

The BMJ module below focuses on long-term leadership but I think that is worthwhile for the shorter sessions too and explains that you don’t have to lead by being the dominant member of the group.
