In this year 4 course, students will receive further training in teaching and assessment. They will observe multiple forms of teaching, as well as undertaking different types of teaching (presentation at international meetings will be encouraged) and assessment themselves, informally reviewed by senior clinicians.
Students will prepare and give a teaching session (different to that in year 3), which will be formally assessed. In this course they will also have to obtain and reflect on feedback from those they have taught. Autonomous background subject reading will be encouraged and guided. Students will be expected to attend at least 1 workshop (agreed on by their supervisor) from VMED.
Depending on availability, and with supervisor approval students will have the opportunity to enrol or continue working towards the Edinburgh Teaching Award, and an Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy qualification.
