Clinical Teaching Fellows
There are currently six CTFs at UCL Medical School, working in the Academic Centre for Medical Education. We come from a variety of medical specialties (currently this includes General Practice, Respiratory Medicine, Rheumatology and Psychiatry) and work in part-time and full-time posts over a 12-24 month period. We all have special interests within Medical Education, and each have responsibilities for managing a variety of exciting projects related to teaching, assessment and educational research. There are also several honorary CTFs who work on specific projects.
We are very pleased to have been awarded the Excellence in Medical Education Award in June 2012, in recognition of our contribution to excellence in the MBBS curriculum.
