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.
