Undergraduate Education Webinars – Call for expression of interest

The College has begun a project to create a number of pre-recorded tutorials on surgical cases to be included in the new GMC's Medical Licensing Assessments for Undergraduates.  Each topic will have a 30-minute online tutorial and a 5-minute "key points" revision session.  We are calling for expressions of interest in assisting with the creation of a tutorial for a topic in your specialty.  You need to be an accomplished and enthusiastic trainer with a drive and interest to showcase your specialty, a consultant or consultant equivalent. Please complete the online form by 1 August to register your interest in participating in this exciting project.   

Call out for faculty to appear in Training the Trainers e-learning

For Training the Trainers we are creating a post-course e-learning module featuring short interviews about the innovative use of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). These videos will spotlight real experiences and insights from both trainers and trainees. We are currently looking for faculty members with experience in using TEL in their teaching. 

Please email if you would be interested in participating.
