Main Teaching 14.00 - 16.30
From 2.00 - 4.45 there is a teaching session for all trainees in the Postgraduate Centre. These sessions will cover a variety of topics, with topics selected on the basis of group learning needs while also ensuring that there is a balanced spread across the curriculum throughout the three year training programme.
Your feedback is essential to the success of these sessions. Let the PDs and Scholar know what topics you would like to be included, as well as which of the sessions you find most valuable.
Trainee led teaching
Approximately every two months there is a trainee led teaching session. This was started by a former scholar (lead trainee) and is entirely led by the trainees. It is an opportunity for the teaching to be very responsive to trainee needs and also for trainees with particular expertise in an area to share their knowledge. These sessions usually receive some of the best feedback because they are so well targeted to their audience!
Approximately every two months there is another type of session in which a selection of trainees make short presentations. These sessions were also started by a previous scholar and they are a mechanism to spread learning from research that is derived from clinical practice. Trainees pick out a question from their practice that allows for further exploration of the research. Topics in the past have ranged from those with a very clinical basis, such as the use of Ibuprofen, to those with a wider societal impact, like the implications of widespread chicken pox vaccination, to some derived from patients presenting as a result of media coverage, such as Lyme Disease and Zika Virus.
