Four Clinical Fellows from the Medical Education and Simulation team at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust recently attended and presented at the prestigious Association for Medical Education in Europe (AMEE) 2022 conference.
The AMEE conference, held in Lyon, France, is one of the world’s biggest medical education conferences with over 4,000 attendees from across the globe and took place at the end of August.
The presenting Clinical Fellows and their presentation subjects are detailed below.
- Dr Joe Gleeson presented “Training Doctors in Ultrasound-Guided Cannulation: A Near-Peer Approach”.
- Dr Joseph Thompson presented “Near-peer Surgical Simulation and Teaching Day for new FY1 Doctors”.
- Dr Hayley Boal presented “Promoting Wellbeing through Reflective Discussion at FY1 teaching - ‘Crumbles and Grumbles’”.
- Dr Samantha Williamson presented “IMPRES5: From Ad-Hoc Teaching Sessions to Full Day Themed Teaching Days: An Undergraduate Education Team’s Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic”.
All four presentations were very well-received and provoked several areas of discussion amongst the international audience.
Following attendance at the conference, the four Clinical Fellows attendees were also able to reflect on their own teaching practice and came back to the rest of the wider team with the proposal of several ideas including:
- Using Pecha Kucha for peer teaching.
- Integrating clinical reasoning into teaching and assisting clinical colleagues to teach clinical reasoning to students.
- Utilising games, such as codenames, in teaching.
- Use of social media reels.
- Mixed-method research techniques for future projects.
The Clinical Fellows had an amazing experience attending the AMEE conference.
