The GP teaching team were well represented at the SAPC Madingley conference, presenting on a range of educational innovations and research from within the department and beyond (see below for details). Following on from Dr David Hirsh’s keynote talk on longitudinal integrated clerkships, some of the Integrated Clinical Apprenticeship team from Imperial (Dr Andy McKeown, Dr Arabella Simpkin and Dr Ravi Parekh) ran an interactive and engaging workshop to explore the evidence for this model of learning and to consider to practicalities of designing and delivering such a model. Ms Giskin Day (Centre for Languages, Culture and Communication), Dr Ros Herbert and Dr Emma Metters also ran a workshop on ‘Arts and Minds: using creative practice in the curriculum to enhance reflection, skills and knowledge’.
Congratulations to all the speakers who presented their work, including Dr Shivani Tanna who won the Dangerous Ideas prize for her IMPACT model, a method for helping students engage with the interpersonal aspects of patient consultations.
