2013. The Warwick MB ChB: Delivering the Refreshed Curriculum
Tuesday 22 October 2013, Radcliffe House, University of Warwick
Our inaugural MB ChB Education Conference took place on 22 October 2013 at Radcliffe House, University of Warwick. Ninety people gathered for a day of professional development for teaching, updates on key topics in medical education and to share good practice in medical student teaching and learning.
Our themes for 2013 were delivering the refreshed curriculum and case-based learning. Colin Melville and Richard Tunstall outlined the shape of the curriculum and the centrality of case based learning. Peter Winstanley updated delegates on the importance of the MB ChB programme to the future strategy for Warwick Medical School.
Megan Quentin-Baxter (Newcastle University) gave the keynote address challenging us to 'flip the classroom'. Parallel sessions and workshops were delivered by staff from Warwick Medical School and the NHS as well as by our own students. Posters covering a range of curriculum innovations were on display and the poster prize was awarded to Katherine Hewitt and fellow students for their work in supporting students required to resit examinations.
The programme and presentations are available to view online.
