Difficulties In Trying To Access Medical Courses

Written by Craig Sheridan · Monday 25th February 2013

I'm a GP registrar in East Anglia with an interest in continuing medical education. Alex Gordon-Weeks - academic surgical registrar at Oxford - and I are undertaking a project that explores some of the difficulties that doctors face when trying to access medical courses.

Doctors complete a number of compulsory and non-compulsory educational courses during and after their medical training. Now that revalidation is compulsory doctors must provide evidence of continuing medical education. Attending courses are an ideal way of maintaining knowledge but they can be expensive and time consuming so it is important that adequate information regarding the course undertaken is provided by the course organisers. To identify areas in which these features could be improved we wish to understand more about the courses that you attend.

We have put together a short survey to obtain anonymised information that we can use to improve course provision. We would love for Meducation members to fill it in and would really appreciate your participation.

You can take the survey at Thanks!
