Careers with Medical Education
The morning will focus on careers with two panel discussions. The first from a number of trainees with medical education roles, each will talk about what they do, how they got involved and how they balance it with clinical practice. The second panel discussion will be from consultant level doctors with significant medical education commitments, again what they do, how they got involved and how it balances with clinical practice. Each discussion will have plenty of time for audience participation.
Medical Education and Research
The afternoon will focus on medical education research. First there will be an opportunity for trainees to present their medical education work. These don't have to be massive projects and the presentations will give the opportunity for sharing, feedback and perhaps to inspire some audience members. The second research session is three talks from current MedEd PhD candidates, all trainees in various specialties this session will give attendees the opportunity to see the huge scope of the MedEd field and hear about some cutting edge research.
