  1. I have just completed editing training materials under “Effective approaches to teaching ‎medical sciences” . My trainees (medical practitioners ) felt astonished to get such training and ‎material written by a non-medical specialist. To make them accept me as their trainer, I told ‎them that teaching/learning theory is an educationalist’s task rather than a physician’s. Beside ‎me , there were two other trainers who teach medical sciences in the faculty, but they didn’t ‎study educational courses. In fact, we have a dilemma ? Who is entitled to deal with teaching ‎medical sciences. Most of instructors in faculties of medicine are medical specialists who have ‎never been exposed to training in teaching , and they hardly accept to be trained by others ‎from outside the discipline. Remarkably , most of themes shown above are very familiar in ‎educational literature. However , the theory of teaching/learning medicine should focus on ‎strong association between theory and practice , a mechanism that educational specialists can ‎not realize. My solution is to locate at least one professor ,with specialty in education, in each ‎medical department but he /she should be trained in medical culture. He or she will help in ‎training physicians who undertake teaching tasks to recognize teaching methods, select and ‎develop authentic medical materials, guide assessment procedures , be able to solve problems of class management, motivation , and …etc. With regard to practice , the job ‎should be entirely left to physicians who are well trained in practical clinical teaching and ‎learning. ‎

  15. […]  ASME has published a 2010 book called Understanding Medical Education.  This fairly lengthy textbook is quite reasonably priced and is available in a kindle version.  At a similar price for a more succinct BMJ publication you could look at the ABC of Learning and Teaching in Medicine, although I think it is only in hard copy as a book.  It is a similar presentation to their ABC books on clinical topics. However, the fourteen individual articles are available online in the BMJ via PubMed… […]
