Northern Deanery Medical Education Conference
Wednesday 5th June 2013 saw the first conference organised by the Northern branch of TASME take place at Newcastle’s St James’ Park. The conference, entitled “The Future of Medical Education in the Northern Deanery”, was organised in conjunction with Health Education North East (formerly the Northern Deanery). I’d like to say a big thank you to the team at HENE, in particular Juliet Graves and Dr Chris Tiplady for their help in getting this event up and running.
In total 125 delegates attended; around two thirds were trainees and the remainder included consultants, GPs and training programme directors. The conference was designed to get people from a mix of backgrounds talking about medical education. There were a multitude of parallel sessions throughout the day aimed at those with different levels of experience (see Main programme and 8-minute talk programme).
Of the 34 different sessions during the day, I’m delighted to say that 17 were delivered by trainees. Highlights of the programme however, included the internationally renowned surgeon and educator Rodney Peyton and Twitter #MedEd royalty @amcunningham. Speakers' biographies
Feedback on the event was extremely positive. Of those completing online feedback (62% response rate so far) 83% felt the day met their training needs and 86% felt that they acquired skills or knowledge that they would use in their workplace.
I feel that the trainee representation at this conference, both in terms of delegates and speakers, proves that many trainees have an appetite to improve their teaching skills and that many possess the ability to provide high quality teaching, even to those more experienced than them. After a long lie down this summer, planning for another conference in 2014 will tentatively get under way!
