Teaching others is a great way to learn and an important skill required by GPs. GP Synergy recognises this and supports registrars to build and develop their teaching skills during their GP training in a variety of ways.
1. Registrars as teachers
To build presentation and education skills, all registrars training with us participate in a ‘registrars as teachers’ learning module where they are provided with individualised feedback to hone their teaching skills.
2. Medical student and prevocational doctor mentoring and education
GP Synergy regularly runs and participates in educational activities for medical students and prevocational doctors. GP Synergy registrars are invited to participate as facilitators and presenters in these fun, and often hands-on, activities.
3. Registrar medical educator positions
GP Synergy has dedicated positions with our organisation for part-time ‘Registrar Medical Educators’. These registrars work within the GP Synergy medical educator team on specific projects under the guidance and mentorship of experienced medical educators.
These positions are a great way for registrars with a serious interest in medical education to try it out first hand.
