Training & Mentoring Study Day Monday 10 June 2019

This study day aims to reiterate the importance of your role as a clinical educator and the impact this has on the learning experience for the student.

Every educator can improve their understanding of evaluating performance and ways to facilitate the development and assessment of learners. By committing to reflect and analyse their own teaching methods and openness to alternative approaches, the learning process can be better understood and made to be a positive experience for both the student and the educator.

The programme for this study day will give you the tools to fulfil your role as a clinical educator in mammography. It will be a busy day with lots of interactive sessions.
