About this Event

TALE 2019

Tuesday 10 September 2019

#gptale2019

Teaching in general practice continues to be a very well evaluated and enjoyable aspect of the medical course at University of Glasgow. We are committed to both supporting and training our tutors and would like to extend an invitation to our annual Teaching and Learning Event (TALE) to all our general practice tutors and educational supervisors.

TALE this year will be held in the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Clydebank, Glasgow on Tuesday 10 September 2019. The keynote speaker is Dr John Gillies. Dr Gillies worked as a general practitioner and is the deputy director of the Scottish School of Primary Care.

The keynote speech entitled "More GPs and better doctors: The future of undergraduate teaching in general practice" will look at the change in the demographic of our populations towards the elderly and the rise in complexity and multimorbidity, as well as constrained health care resources meaning that we need to rethink undergraduate medical education to address these issues. Increasing education in general practice and primary care will deliver more GPs, and can also help to produce doctors who have a greater understanding of this, whether they have careers in hospital or community facing posts.

TALE will not only celebrate what is good about general practice teaching, but will also focus on updating supervisors and tutors on developments in the curriculum. There will be a varied programme including sessions for tutors on Vocational Studies, Clinical GP Placements, and several workshops covering various aspects of professionalism pertinent to the undergraduate medical student. There will also be workshops on feedback, resilience, clinical procedural skills and Musculoskeletal Examination.

We are offering 115 places and hope that you will be able to come. Admission this year is by ticket, which will be available to print once you have registered. There is no charge for this event.
