Seminar: "Learning and surviving: an outsider looking in at the working lives of doctors"

Speaker: Professor Jeremy Brown, Postgraduate Medical Institute, Edge Hill University

Event details


Medicine is a career that requires doctors to continually reflect, learn and develop throughout their working life. Jeremy will address some of the ongoing challenges faced by doctors at each stage of their professional career, from newly qualified to hospital consultant or GP. This seminar will consider the multiple roles of doctors as clinicians, learners, educators and leaders.  In doing so Jeremy will reflect on the current state of medical education research as an academic discipline and consider where our research priorities should lie in relation to undergraduate / postgraduate education and patient care.

Jeremy became Professor of Clinical Education at Edge Hill University in August 2015.  He has been funded by Health Education England North West (formerly Mersey Deanery) to undertake medical education research for the last 17 years, working with hospital doctors and GPs.  He has published over 45 academic articles, including an editorial in the British Medical Journal regarding the durability of medical career choices. He is Deputy Chair of the ASME Research Group, leading the organisation of their annual Researching Medical Education Research Conference in London.  In 2015 he was awarded, as Project Lead, ASME/General Medical Council’s ‘Excellent Medical Education’ prize for research in the postgraduate setting.
