... Empowering trainees
to become educators of the future ...
Health Education England's Wessex team 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 England's Wessex team 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 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.
