Innovations in Medical Education Conference

We held a virtual conference on Innovations in Medical Education with leading researchers and practitioners from the University of Nottingham on 13 January 2021.

The conference was one element in our celebrations of 50 years of medicine at Nottingham and showcased research and practise at the largest medical school in the UK. 

In the morning there will be a series of focused presentations highlighting research and implementation of innovations in curriculum diversity, assessment, teaching clinical skills, student wellbeing and widening participation.  Following the presentations we will have a series of structured workshops to provide an opportunity to share ideas and experiences.
