About this book

Major changes continue to occur in medical education. There are increasing external and internal pressures to improve the quality of courses and the teaching performance of individual staff.
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1983, the Handbook for Medical Teachers has established itself as an ideal resource for both new and established teachers in an area where there is very little other support. It successfully combines basic educational principles with a how-to approach in a very readable way, supported by numerous illustrations and cartoons.
This third edition has been extensively revised throughout to reflect the many changes in medical education since the last edition. There is a new chapter on problem-based learning as well as an appendix on how to keep a teaching portfolio as a support for academic promotion or staff appraisal.
A Handbook for Medical Teachers is essential reading for all those involved in any area of medical teaching and research.

Reviews

About the Second Edition:
`.. this book should be compulsory reading for anybody learning the art of teaching and would prove useful to students about to go on courses or sit exams. '
Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps, Feb.1988

`.. the second edition of `A Handbook for Medical Teachers' is more comprehensive and even more useful than the first edition. The authors have indeed practiced what they preach! The modifications and adjustments have ensured that the handbook will continue to be a most respected and helpful resource for many years to come.'
Bulletin Australian and New Zealand Association for Medical Education.
` A book that should be in every undergraduate and postgraduate library. '
Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol.70 (4).

` Few teachers of medical students will have had any formal training in teaching or educational methods. This book seeks to rectify this deficiency in an entertaining, informative and practical way. '
Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Vol.68, 1986.
