You should by now have realised that with annual appraisals and revalidation it is absolutely vital to demonstrate that you are continuing to develop and learn as an educator. So, this year we are starting a series of educator conferences at CMFT. These have two main purposes. Firstly we want to get as many people as possible involved in medical education by showcasing the superb work done in the trust. Secondly, we want to oiffer high quality, local, approved training to clinical and educational supervisors who do so much to support undergraduate and postgraduate education in the trust.
The Trust’s first Medical Educators’ Conference will be held on Friday 25th April 2014 . This event is for clinical and educational supervisors of postgraduate and undergraduate medical trainees.
The conference is designed to support educators’ continuing professional development, keep educators abreast of changes in medical education and facilitate peer support and networking amongst educators and the Postgraduate Medical Education Team. The event will allow educators to fulfil appraisal requirements and meet the GMC standard for approved trainer status, and, for existing supervisors, this will count as sufficient activity to keep their GMC approved trainer status in the current year.
There will be speakers from the Postgraduate Medical Education Team, as well the North Western Deanery and the Manchester Medical School, amongst others. Interactive workshops will include topics such as managing doctors in difficulty, giving effective feedback and undergraduate tutor training.
