PATME: Professional Appraisal Toolkit for Medical Educators (26 Feb 2015)

The Academy of Medical Educators is pleased to invite to you to attend its 2015 Spring Meeting in Swansea.

You can book your place at this event here

Appraisal and peer review is becoming an indispensable part of professional life as a medical educator. Submitting evidence about your daily work as an educator for feedback from your peers, supervisors and trainees can be a daunting and time-consuming process, but this practical, hands-on one day workshop will help you to:

• Use and understand existing standards frameworks for medical education
• Gather evidence about your professional practice
• Reflect on your skills, experiences and learning to improve your work
• Apply your reflection to prepare a personal development plan
• Use your evidence to prepare for appraisal and to apply for professional recognition through the Academy of Medical Educators
Activities will include:
• A short guide to standards frameworks that apply to medical education including the Academy of Medical Educators’ Professional Standards and the GMC’s plans to recognise trainers
• An introduction to the variety of roles played by the medical educator and the ways in which evidence can be applied
• A brief theoretical guide to reflective practice in medical education
• Practical exercises in producing and reflecting on your evidence
• An intensive workshop on reflective writing.
• Role play for appraisal

Registrants will be encouraged to think about and bring along examples of their work as an educator so that they can use these to prepare their written evidence and reflect on the next steps in their career.  Registrants must be prepared to share their experiences and to offer and receive feedback.

A team of facilitators, let by Professor Andrew Grant, will be on hand.  All are experienced medical educators and the team will include at least two assessors for the Academy of Medical Educators’ Professional Recognition Scheme.  CPD is available.

Registration £30 to include lunch and attendance at the AoME President’s Prize-Giving and Spring Drinks Reception at 5.30 pm in The Hub, 5th Floor Institute of Life Science, Swansea University.

Yours sincerely
Academy of Medical Educators
