6th National Scottish Medical Education Conference, Edinburgh


As always, SMERC will have a big presence at the National Scottish Medical Education Conferences. 

Aberdeen and NES are featured on two of only five invited oral presentations:

  • The clinical learning environment in Anaesthesia (presented by Jen Cleland)
  • Factors explain differences in clinical learning climates (presented by Ruby Roberts, SMERC-funded post-doctoral fellow)

Vicki Tallentire (Edinburgh) and Jill Morrison (Glasgow) present a workshop on “Junior doctors leaving the UK: Tackling the retention crisis”.  This is complemented nicely by a workshop from Peter Johnson (NES), Jen Cleland (Aberdeen), Jon Dowell (Dundee) and Kirsty White from the GMC exploring the value of UKMED to encouraging longitudinal studies in medical education. 

Numerous SMERC projects will also be advertised via poster presentations, including those from:

Alan Japp and colleagues (Edinburgh, Glasgow) - Entrustable Professional Activities and the transition to the early years of clinical practice

Michael Ross, Clare McRae and colleagues (Edinburgh, Glasgow) - understanding, valuing and enhancing the role of clinicians who teach

Gillian Scanlon, Jen Cleland and colleagues (Aberdeen, NES) – careers decision making in Foundation Year doctors
