To sum up
This module has provided an introduction to the teaching of clinical skills. As we have seen, clinical teachers will need to show a flexible and imaginative approach to their teaching. They need to be aware of theoretical models and best practice, and be able to adapt and incorporate them into their own practice. But amidst the high-fidelity simulators and web-based skills development programs, clinical teachers need to be role models, displaying all the best characteristics of our profession – dedication, ability and skill – enthusing and encouraging the next generation of clinicians. Above all, we must lead the way in demonstrating ‘caritas’ to our trainees, colleagues and patients.
