Warwick Medical School's Inaugural Lectures continue

nj.jpgWarwick Medical School's Inaugural Lecture Series continues on the 17th March with a talk on medical education from the Associate Dean for Teaching and Professor of Medical Education, Neil Johnson.

In his lecture on at the Medical Teaching Centre Lecture Theatre, Professor Johnson will describe three journeys. The first is his journey to where he is now, the second his journey of curiosity and discovery in the field of teaching and learning in medicine and his thinking about the future of medical education, particularly at Warwick Medical School. And thirdly, he will share a number of lessons he has learnt along the way.

Neil has been at Warwick since 2006 and took on the Associate Dean role last year. His work is concerned with the future of medical education, how we can improve the courses we deliver to students to best prepare them for the very demanding, yet rewarding role of a doctor. With this in mind, Neil has recently contributed to a General Medical Council report on medical education called ‘Tomorrow’s Doctors’.

Launched in September 2006, the monthly lectures give each professor at the Medical School the chance to highlight their field of interest, allowing members of the public, university colleagues and associates to learn more about the work undertaken in the Medical School.

Forthcoming lecturers include Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Damian Griffin, and Professor of Public Health in the Early Years, Jane Barlow.

The one hour lecture in the Medical Teaching Centre Lecture Theatre starts at 6pm followed by a drinks reception. If you would like to attend, please contact the Inaugural Lectures Coordinator
