Welcome to Medical Education in LSCFT
In LSCFT MedEd our vision is 'to nurture our students and doctors as part of a clinical team to better understand mental health the experiences of their patients, families and carers, to support them to provide high quality clinical care and to support and develop our trainers to facilitate this lifelong learning'
We have a strong focus on improving the training experience via individual post feedback using data form multiple sources including end of placement feedback surveys. the National Training Survey (NTS) and National Educational Training Survey (NETS).
We try to keep abreast of new developments in education, to incorporate these into our posts. Examples of this include our work on Fatigue and Wellbeing, CASC development training, the Consultant interview skills simulation workshops, the support for Less Than Full Time (LTFT) Trainees and our development of Medical Education Fellows.
The Trust is also on a quality improvement journey, and we are keen to encourage all of our doctors to be involved quality improvement and audit within the Trust and to share this good practice with other.
We use Twitter to share some of the work that we are doing on our LSCFT Medical Education Twitter page, but also many of the Medical Education Team have their own profiles and these are listed with links in the Medical Educational Team section of these webpages.
