What have they taught me

What have they taught me?

  • Always know what you are letting yourself in for- CV, informal chat, what are they not telling you

  • Make clear your role from the start- teacher, listening ear, critical friend (never forget this is a professional relationship)

  • Don’t underestimate the impact of life events- finances, love affairs, morning sickness

  • Do you trust them?

  • Documentation of training- just enough, high quality not quantity- be clear about your expectations

  • Everyone has a personal consultation style and there is room for infinite variety as long as the quality is there


What have i taught them

What have I taught them?

  • Observation and listening to the patient will usually give you the answer

  • There is no way around gaining knowledge except learning something every week, for ever- BMJ highlights

  • I can only be me- sit in with lots of doctors and watch how they do it

  • Stay within the rules and keep your head down- eportfolio, leave, VTS attendance

  • Educational theory that works- Pendleton’s rules

Why do things go wrong

Why do things go wrong?

  • Making incorrect assumptions about a registrar

  • Registrar not telling the whole story

  • Knowledge deficits

  • Lack of professional attitude

  • Personality clash- this should not happen if you have done the preliminaries

  • Always document issues from the start, record facts first and your interpretation second and sparingly


Where do trainers go for support

Where do trainers go for support?

  • Always trainers’ workshop

  • Deanery has usually disappointed

  • Support for trainer and trainee must be consistent and transparent- formal meetings, further training, mediation
