Teaching workshops are aimed at the needs of both new and experienced GP teachers. We cover topics from the undergraduate curriculum, practice teaching competencies and invite speakers to talk about their specialism and how they teach it. Our aim is to create, support and develop a community of skilled and enthusiastic GP teachers.

MB21 Hot dinner and Year 4 Focus group

An opportunity to help shape Year 4 GP teaching in MB21

Organisers: Barbara Laue and Lucy Jenkins

 Dinner from 6.30pm prompt 7pm start, close 9.15pm

MB21 will begin this autumn with Year 1. The new Year 4 will come on stream in 2020 and will have two longitudinal GP clerkships. Students will spend one day a week in Primary Care and community settings throughout Year 4.

Now is the time to flesh out the new Year 4 GP teaching. We in Primary Care are keen to hear your views and ideas and would like to invite you to our Year 4 Focus Group and a hot dinner.  This is a chance for you to use your experience and expertise to shape future Year 4 GP teaching

  MB21 Year 1 and Year 5 Roadshow

Engineers’ House, Clifton, Bristol on Tuesday 25th April 6.30-9.15pm

We would like to invite you to Dinner and to take part in a discussion about teaching opportunities in MB21, the new curriculum at Bristol Medical School. 

The first years to come on board in the new curriculum will be Year 1 (from October 2017) and Year 5 (from January 2018). If you are a current (or previous) Year 1 or Year 5 teacher this is a good opportunity to update on planned changes, such as the expansion of Year 5 teaching from 2 to 4 weeks and a more apprentice-style clerkship. But even if you don't currently teach or teach other years, then this is a good opportunity to discover how you can be involved, and to give your feedback on the plans. Please remember that Year 1 and Year 2 teaching does not take place in all Academies.

Now is an exciting time to get involved in student teaching. Bristol Medical School has developed a brand new curriculum — MB21 — which will start this autumn. General Practice based teaching will treble and we are looking for more enthusiastic GPs to help with our programme.

If you have not taught medical students before or have done very little teaching, this workshop is for you. We will provide you with an overview of the existing and new curriculum and information how you can join our community of GP Teachers.

There will be hands on practice of teaching skills including giving feedback.
