Quality clinical education: why it really matters

Professor Nisha Dogra of the School of Psychology.

Issued by University of Leicester Press Office on 27 October 2011

A University of Leicester psychiatrist nominated for a prestigious teaching award is to lecture on how quality medical education brings real-world benefits to patients.

Professor Nisha Dogra of the School of Psychology will give her professorial inaugural lecture ‘Quality clinical education: why it really matters?’ on 1 November. It will be held at 5.30pm in Ken Edwards Building Lecture Theatre 1 and is free and open to the public.

Professor Dogra’s lecture will describe her first innovation in education and how that influenced her future work; the work she has led into the teaching of child psychiatry at the University, and how it shaped her approach to improving the educational experience of students; her innovative approach to teaching cultural diversity and how it links with clinical practice and improving patient care; and the research and scoping group project work undertaken in teaching psychiatry.

Her work has led to a nomination for Most Innovative Teacher of the Year in the Times Higher Education awards 2011.

Professor Dogra said, “I will be arguing the case that providing quality clinical care has parallels with providing quality educational experiences. I will also argue that skills from the clinical context can help deliver high quality educational experience and educational strategies can help deliver good clinical care. In doing so, I hope to be able to encourage some audience participation.”
