GP Tutor Development

1. CBME Training


Tutor training days offer the opportunity to hear about new developments, bridge educational theory with practice and to share ideas and good practice amongst our community of GP tutors. These tutor days are two-way in that we at CBME are really keen to hear your ideas and perspectives such that we are developing our courses and curriculum in line with current educational thinking as well as our student and GP tutor feedback.

Training for Medicine and Society Tutors, 18 September 2014 (PM)

We held a training event for Medicine and Society 1 on the afternoon of 18 September 2014. The afternoon focused on QM+ and the reflective writing that the students submit.  We are aware that some tutors found this difficult last year and we responded to tutor feedback with an upgrade to the QM+ system. We hoped that this will be simpler for everyone involved this year. The session started from 2pm for GP tutors and community tutors. Please contact Rosie Murphy for further information,, 0207 882 2522.
