The increase in medical student numbers: challenges and solutions

Most medical schools will be increasing their intake of students over the next few years. This can create challenges for the teaching and assessment of medical ethics and law.


The purpose of the workshop is to bring together medical ethics and law educators from different medical schools, with different student numbers, to share their experience and  ideas about how to teach and assess medical ethics and law. The focus is on exploring different methods of teaching and assessment, and thereby provide practical solutions to the problem of scaling up or amending your existing model of delivery to accommodate the anticipated increase in student numbers.


The workshop will also be of interest to those who simply want to hear how others teach and assess medical ethics and law for medical students, in order to develop new ideas for their own teaching.


All involved in the delivery of undergraduate medical ethics and law within medical schools are welcome.


The workshop is free to IME members. Booking is required. Click here to book your place.


The workshop will run 11.00am - 3.00pm, arrival drinks and lunch will be provided.
