Development Opportunities

Annual Best Practice in Teaching Event

Leicester Medical School's annual Best Practice in Teaching events provide an opportunity to share good practice in teaching and learning highlighted by our partner Trusts and Academies and for the Medical School to provide updates concerning the new MB ChB curriculum and assessment.  We hope the events provide a good opportunity for colleagues with an educational role and interest to share ideas and network with other undergraduate Clinical Teachers in the East Midlands.

Leicester Medical School hosted its second annual Best Practice in Teaching Event on Thursday 24th May 2018 at the George Davies Centre.  Read a report on the day.
