Learning and development during COVID-19

We understand that you may not be able to attend face-to-face teaching yet, so we want to ensure you can still access CPD on a range of issues.

RCP Medicine Podcasts: New special episode

All RCP podcasts are being hosted together – find them all on Buzzsprout now.

Our ever-popular RCP Medicine podcast offers regular discussion of different topics relevant to physicians and physician associates, and is now focusing on COVID-19 and responses to it.

In this special episode, Dr Amie Burbridge talks to RCP president Professor Andrew Goddard about his personal reflections on the first 6 months of the pandemic. Listen to his thoughts about the impact of the first wave and what the future holds.

Learning online? Use RCP OnlineEd

We understand that you may not be able to attend face-to-face teaching yet, so we want to ensure you can still access CPD on a range of issues. We have also been working hard to ensure that we can provide you with new, relevant material, like the courses below:

Role modelling
Our new ‘Role modelling’ course is designed to support healthcare professionals to consider the importance of role modelling, reflect on the characteristics of good and poor role modelling and explore strategies to improve role modelling within your own practice. 

Supporting a trainee in difficulty
Designed for experienced clinicians in all areas of healthcare practice who work alongside trainees they don’t directly supervise, this online learning resource introduces methods and strategies for supporting trainees who are in difficulty.    


Face-to-face teaching

At the RCP, we have adapted our face-to-face teaching and are reviewing our CPD workshops on a case-by-case basis. We aim to deliver our courses face-to-face but are completely prepared to deliver virtually, dependent on the government guidance and restrictions in place at the time and location.

We want to assure you that we have closely followed the advice of the government to make our spaces safe for all delegates, and are implementing COVID-secure measures. Further information on the measures being implemented.

Our workshops are now live for registration with new 2021 dates being released

NACT and RCP winter meeting

This long-running and highly successful meeting run by the National Association of Clinical Tutors (NACT) is being co-badged and delivered in collaboration with the RCP for the first time.

The programme is designed to appeal to educators in all roles and career stages: medical education fellows and trainees with an interest in education, clinicians with roles as supervisors or programme director, as well as those in trust and school leadership and management roles. Medical education managers, operational managers from statutory education bodies and those in similar roles across the education system are equally welcome.
