Want to teach?
CMFT has three years to turn people who may scarcely have set
foot in a hospital and faint at the sight of blood into the sort of
person you would choose to have looking after you if you were ill;
skilled, knowledgeable and caring. The attitudes of people who
medical students come into contact with have a powerful effect. If
hospitals are impersonal places in which poor standards are
tolerated, that is how student doctors will practise. If people
show concern for students in their learning, this will be carried
forward into a student's future practise. The most effective
teachers are knowledgeable, skilled and working to the highest
professional standards. Naturally, doctors play the main part in
teaching medicine; however members of every professional group in
The Trust have expertise which is relevant to medical training.
Training in a multi-professional environment is an essential
preparation for good future team-working.
