Improve your skills as an educator at the BSUH Inter-professional Research, Education and Knowledge Conference 2017

Directorate Education Knowledge Logo

Do you teach or supervise medical trainees, nursing students, or staff in any profession at BSUH?  Every year the Trust runs a one-day conference aimed at educators – this year it’s coming up on the 15th September in the Audrey Emerton Building.  These events always receive excellent feedback thanks to the wide range of topics covered, which are useful for staff of all disciplines, so why not come along?

The Inter-professional Research, Education and Knowledge Conference 2017 (IREKCon) will include plenary sessions from experts on engaging the multi-generational workforce, co-designing services with patients, and changing behaviours of staff.  There will be break-out groups discussing everything from safety huddles to human factors education, trainee feedback and innovative approaches to case-based discussions.

We’ll also have demonstrations of the simulated ambulance (“simbulance”) and practical workshops on using technology in teaching, improving productivity and networking with Twitter.

For full details and to book a place use the iris virtual learning system at http://iris.bsuh.nhs.uk and look for “4th BSUH Inter-Professional Conference

Our students have put Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) in first position in the National Student Survey (NSS) for medical schools

It has been the most superb year for BSMS with excellent NSS results. BSMS have scored a near perfect 99% for overall satisfaction and are ranked first, the top spot for undergraduate medical degrees.

The quality of teaching was rated extremely highly, with 100% of participants agreeing that the course is intellectually stimulating and that they have been provided with opportunities to apply what they have learnt. In addition, 98% agreed that staff are good at explaining things and have made the subject interesting.

Dr Juliet Wright, Director of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning at BSMS, says: “I am delighted with our excellent results in the 2017 National Student Survey. Our staff are committed to providing students with an outstanding education in medicine, and the particularly high scores for teaching show we have been successful in achieving this. Results of 100% for the quality of the course and opportunities for students to apply what they have learnt, show that we are clearly preparing our students well for their future careers in the NHS.”

bsmsStudents felt strongly that BSMS provided a positive learning environment, with 97% believing that they felt part of a community of staff and students, and had the right opportunities to work with other students. Access to course-specific resources was also very high at 99%, and sufficient advice and guidance in relation to the course and opportunities to provide feedback both received 98%.
