F2 Regional Teaching

All F2 trainees must do a minimum of 4 Regional Teaching Days, 2 of which have to be both Clinical Skills and Human Factors. To find out what other Regional Teaching courses are available to you, please click here to access our MaxCourse Regional Teaching Booking System.

We encourage you to book onto this exciting, new course; Foundation Teaching Skills - Train the Trainers #CPRinSchools. This training day will provide participants with basic level knowledge and skills in designing and delivering short skills acquisition training sessions. It will give you the ability to provide short skill based teaching sessions to colleagues and other healthcare professionals, it also provides an understanding of how to deliver CPR training so that Foundation level postgraduate medical trainees can deliver training sessions on this technique to non healthcare participants.

This course will count towards one of your four compulsory regional teaching days.

The first day is 15th February at Redwood Education Centre, Gloucestershire - don't miss out!!

The Medico-Legal Training Day is a new course which has recently been added to the F2 Regional Teaching Programme. The day is being run by executives from Irwin Mitchell LLP and will be an introduction into medico-legal issues including consent, record keeping and rehabilitation signposting. 
The session will be followed by a free lunch offering you the opportunity to raise further questions and issues directly with the speakers, and to network with your colleagues.

Location: Musgrove Park Academy, Taunton - Somerset

Date & Time: Thursday 28 February 2019, 09:30 to 13:00
