... Empowering trainees
to become educators of the future ...
Health Education Wessex strives to produce exceptional medical
educators of the future by providing an environment in which
educational activities and programmes can flourish and
develop. It recognises that whilst all trainees are
expected to engage in medical education, some may find this a
daunting prospect, whilst others may have a special interest in
this area. Sometimes the path into the world of medical education
can appear a little unclear. In response to this
Health Education Wessex offers a series of eduction programmes
and support networks to help trainees develop their
interests and perhaps become the future leaders in education.
These include the Tomorrow's Teachers course, Medical Education
Fellow role and Medical Education Mentorship
There is a general expectation and assumption that all trainees
will to some extent engage in, and be involved with teaching and
education. Some trainees undertake considerably more educational
activity than is expected of their level and this should be
recognised more formally. These trainees may be suitable for
appointment to the role of a Health Education Wessex Medical
Education Fellow. This role has been developed to help
professionalise educational activities as well as to produce
educationally minded professionals who are able to take up Lead
Educator positions at the end of training.

We know that many junior doctors have a developing interest in
medical education, but starting a career in medical education can
sometimes seem daunting and unfamiliar. The MEMP has been developed to help trainees lay the
foundations for a career in medical education by pairing them with
a current MEF to mentor them through the process. Equally,
some trainees may have a desire to become a MEF, but do not
quite meet the eligibility criteria yet, and the MEMP can be a useful place in which to develop the
skills and attributes.
Find out more about the Medical
Education Mentorship Scheme.
The Medical Education Fellows organise an annual conference
where trainees are invited both from Wessex and nationally to
celebrate their achievements in medical education. Through a series
of guest speakers, facilitated workshops, debates and trainee
presentations and posters, advances in education are showcased and
connections are made.
