Training to Teach

Teaching in the Clinical Environment

"Teaching is a skill and like any skill it can be learnt. Those with a special responsibility for teaching need to make every effort to develop and maintain the skills of a competent teacher".
Good Medical Practice, GMC, 2006

UCL Medical School is delighted to announce the return of our teacher training course for healthcare professionals who teach in the clinical setting, adapted from feedback received from the TIPS teaching course that was ran previously.

This one-day course offers practical guidance on developing your teaching skills by improving interaction and applying structure to your teaching sessions with the opportunity to practice these newly acquired skills in a mini-teaching session of your own. The course incorporates core aspects of clinical teaching with small group teaching and consistently links to medical educational theory.

The course will run from registration and introduction at 8.45am until 5.00pm, with coffee, tea and biscuit breaks. Please note that biscuits provided at the Clinical Skills Centre may contain nuts.
