About this event

CBME North East London Student Tutor Training (NESTT)

To study the phenomenon of disease without books is to sail an uncharted sea, while to study books without patients is not to go to sea at all. –Paraphrased from Sir William Osler

Training doctors of tomorrow is vital to the future of patient care. We believe that our clinical educators matter, our students matter and relationships matter.

The literature affirms that the human dimension of teaching is central to student wellbeing, engagement, and patient care (you will hear more about this on the course).

Our three-session programme therefore engages both in the relational as well as the knowledge and skills-based dimensions of education.

• How do we build a psychologically safe learning environment?

• How do we build self-compassion and compassion for others?

• How do we manage ‘difficult’ students and situations?

Some of the core themes that will be addressed through interactive workshop methods include:

• preparing the practice and patients

• facilitation of student-centred learning

• giving effective feedback

• developing reflective practice

• developing as a virtual educator

The training involves bite-sized theory and plenty of dialogue and practical experience and will be supplemented by the NUGGETS (New undergraduate gems: great educational tips shared) monthly 1 hour programme of sessions open to all CBME educators, all training dates and information about courses will be updated here.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance on completion of an online feedback form after the training.

The sessions are facilitated by Dr Louise Younie, Clinical Reader in Medical Education and Dr Rofique Ali, GP Partner and GP Innovation Fellow in Teaching

* Engaging, inclusive and passionate trainers.
