There are several opportunities to contribute to student teaching via virtual programmes. These may fit in easier with your rota, and may be easier to commit to if you not on the main sites. However, they all require a time commitment so read through the information carefully and plan ahead.
Case of The Month
Case of the Month is an online, interactive, patient case programme for final year students. It exists in the UCL Moodle Virtual Learning Environment. You could become a CoTM tutor, or case writer. Read more about how to get involved on the CoTM page.
Reflective Practice Tutor
Reflective practice is at the heart of professional development. Year 4 students complete 2 short essays reflecting on a case or situation that they found interesting or challenging. Tutors are responsible for marking essays and giving feedback for around 10 students, encouraging the development of analytical and reasoning skills and insight. Read more about this great opportunity on the Reflective Practice Tutor page.
Ask a Junior Doctor
It can sometimes be hard for students to find doctors who have enough time to answer their little queries and problems. A team of junior doctors are piloting a service to answer any questions UCL medical students may have. Read more about how you can get involved on the "Ask a Junior Doctor" page.
Launching in April #quclms will be a twitter-based educational project. Read more about what it will invilve and how you can get involved on the #quclms pages.
