This book describes in straightforward practical terms how teaching can be more effective in clinic on the wards in the operating theatre and in formal teaching sessions. Teaching techniques and methods and their appropriate use are examined in detail. Emphasis is given to the teaching of skills and attitudes as well as knowledge with particular stress on communication skills teaching and assessment. Separate consideration is given to the art of supervision and mentoring emphasising the duty of care of the teacher. Each author has many years experience of teaching in postgraduate medical education. This is not a book about the theory of education and training but provides insight into the practical methods and skills needed to be a better trainer. The text complements the many courses on effective teaching and provides an alternative for those who prefer to read to learn. It is an essential book for every consultant with responsibility for supervising doctors in training and for senior doctors in training - the supervisors of tomorrow.
