On-the-job teaching - Birmingham

This 1-day 'On-the-job teaching' workshop is for doctors who wish to integrate teaching and learning into their everyday service, combining ward rounds, on-take and outpatient teaching with patient care.

Finding the time and opportunity to teach effectively can be difficult within a busy hospital environment. This workshop provides practical suggestions on how to maximise learning opportunities and become a more effective teacher.

By identifying techniques for teaching knowledge, clinical skills and professional behaviour, we will examine how to successfully incorporate teaching sessions into all clinical commitments.

Very useful. I will utilise the approaches and on the job teaching styles in my everyday practice.

Learning outcomes

  • integrate teaching and learning into everyday service provision
  • increase opportunities on the ward and the proportion of time available for education
  • understand how knowledge, clinical skills and professional behaviour can be acquired and taught
  • plan ahead to enable on-the-job teaching to become more effective and efficient.

Who should attend?

This is a popular workshop suitable for doctors of all grades and specialties.

This was a really very worthwhile day out. My main question about how I can deliver meaningful teaching in busy clinics under pressure of time was definitely addressed and I feel I am taking away some useful skills and tips which I will undoubtedly use.
