13  GMC’s “Good Medical Practice”, 2001. ◦ - Teaching, training, appraising and assessing doctors and students are important for the care of patients now and in the future. You should be willing to contribute to these activities. ◦ - If you are involved in teaching you must develop the skills, attitudes and practices of a competent teacher. ◦ - You must make sure that all staff, for whom you are responsible, including locums and students, are properly supervised. ◦ - You must be honest and objective when appraising or assessing the performance of colleagues, including locums and students. Patients will be put at risk if you describe as competent someone who has not reached or maintained a satisfactory standard of practice.

25 Hello and welcome to the Wessex Deanery Medical Education Fellows’ guide on how to develop your interest in Medical Education. This resource is aimed at anyone who wants to expand their horizons in Medical Education. As trainees with a passion for education and training, we know how difficult and daunting it can be to start building up experience in this arena and even to know exactly what falls under ‘the umbrella’ of Medical Education. Having all pioneered a way through it ourselves, here are our combined ideas about how to put your enthusiasm to work, develop opportunities and broaden your horizons in this area. Have fun!

26  Recognisable but informal programme  Complement & support Ed. Supervisors  Named MEF for each trainee / mentee, preferably in same trust  Discussion, guidance, goal-setting

27  NOT based on ‘competency’ or appraisal  NOT for support of struggling trainees  MEFs involved receive mentorship training

28  Formalise & develop trainees’ ed. skills  Increase MEF numbers, experience & expertise  Stronger links with Ed. Supervisors  Continue strong Deanery ed. focus  Regular pathway / programme evaluation
