2020 Conference

The Warwick Doctor: Developing Excellence in the 21st Century

Friday 26th June 2020

The MBChB Education Conference is moving online for 2020!

Our annual education conference is an opportunity for everyone involved in delivering Warwick Medical School's MB ChB to come together for a day of professional development, updates on key topics in medical education and to share good practice in teaching medical students.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year's conference will take place online.

Please visit our 2020 virtual conference page for programme information and registration.

Please note that we are currently developing our online programme and the information below may change.

Our themes for 2020 include:

  1. Teaching for learning: The role of feedback and workplace-based assessments
  2. Teaching clinical reasoning
  3. Partnership working – how do our different partnerships enhance learning and teaching and the experience of patients, students and staff?
  4. Developing as an effective teacher
  5. Student initiatives in medical education
  6. Enhancing medical student support, learning, teaching and assessment
  7. Other initiatives relevant to the MBChB.

Who should attend?

Everyone involved in delivering the MB ChB is invited to attend. Each year, a number of places at the conference are reserved for medical students with a special interest in medical education.

Plenary speaker

What do we know about teaching clinical reasoning?

This plenary will give a brief overview of what we know about teaching clinical reasoning and highlight a few key areas to illustrate how what is taught, how it is taught, and when it is taught can facilitate clinical reasoning development more effectively within existing curricula.

Dr Nicola Cooper is a Consultant Physician based at the University Hospitals of Derby & Burton NHS Foundation Trust, Clinical Associate Professor in Medical Education at the University of Nottingham and Chair of the UK Clinical Reasoning in Medical Education group.
