TeachMedics

SUPPORTING DOCTORS, SHAPING CAREERS

Founded by five junior doctors passionate about improving medical education, TeachMedics is here to support medical students and doctors in training. We offer help in navigating key milestones and honing the fundamental, transferrable skills necessary to allow individuals to flourish in their careers.

We focus on three key areas: providing free teaching material in the form of presentations, running national courses, and offering mentorship schemes to young doctors.

TeachMedics Presentations

Helping provide great teaching

We have spent time and care working on a library of validated, free and easy to use presentations to help teach medical students.

 

Common problems faced when teaching

  1. Despite enthusiasm for teaching, time constraints make preparing teaching material onerous

  2. Junior doctors can often only spare 20-30 minutes to teach during the day

  3. Existing teaching materials are usually aimed at 1 hour teaching slots

 

Our solution

  1. Ready-made teaching slides on a variety of medical and surgical topics

  2. Lecture notes to accompany the slide set to make teaching easy

  3. Mixture of case based and didactic formats to provide flexibility and targeted learning

  4. Designed to be delivered in 20 minutes

  5. Reliable, peer reviewed content by senior doctors prior to publication

  6. Regularly updated using your feedback and changes in clinical practice

 

TeachMedics Courses

 

To teach, to inspire

We provide a range of courses to help medical students and junior doctors progress through their careers

 

Common problems with medical courses

  1. Topics are often based on speakers’ interests rather than designed for the attendees

  2. Information on career ‘next steps’ difficult to trust and outdated

  3. Courses can be prohibitively expensive

  4. Difficult to get study leave to attend courses

 

Our solution

  1. Content delivered by those most able to connect with their audience (near-peer teaching)

  2. Flexible approach with half-day formats held on weekends; easy to access venues throughout London and the South of England

  3. Reasonable pricing aimed at covering costs rather than driving profit

  4. Oversight by course tutors with exceptional experience in teaching and organization

 

In total, we have delivered six national courses since 2013. Please see individual pages for testimonials and details.
