The UCL Medical School Medical Education conference attracts leaders in the field of medical education to exchange ideas and experiences to improve educational practice.
Medical Education Conference 2013
2013’s conference programme was built on the success of previous, very
popular events. The theme was Transitions in Medical Education and Training. We were very fortunate to have a number of inspirational national and
international speakers including Prof Sir John Tooke, Dr David Hirsh from
Harvard Medical School, Prof Trudie
Roberts from Leeds, Dr Vicky Tallentire from Edinburgh, Prof Christine Jorm from Sydney and Dr Anita Berlin (UCL).
Medical Education Conference 2012
We held our second Medical Education Conference - Teaching, Learning and Assessing in the Workplace. The event was fully booked three weeks in advance of the day and attracted colleagues from central teaching sites, district general hospitals and general practice. Delegates from the GMC, other medical schools, the Deanery and the Institute of education were also present.
Medical Education Conference 2011
This conference was designed to explore the impact that Tomorrow's Doctors (2009) has had on the UCL MBBS curriculum as well as an opportunity to discuss current developments in the teaching and assessment of medical students at UCL.
The conference consisted of plenaries by both
UCL academics and invited speakers and a variety of
workshops. Delegates attended one of four workshops in the morning and
one of four workshops in the afternoon. The workshops encompassed
assessment methods and techniques in both undergraduate and postgraduate
medical training as well as curriculum development and learning and
achievement in undergraduate medicine.
