Every doctor is supposed to be a teacher as outlined in the roles and responsibilities by the GMC but how do you actually ensure you are qualified to undertake this role? This book outlines the career pathways that are available within medical education in various settings including undergraduate, postgraduate, Royal College and NHS. It emphasizes the need for professional educators in the work place and shows how to develop a career in the subject from portfolio to full time educator. It discusses the new GMC standards that facilitate and aid the development of educators and highlights the need for their continued professional development. This recogni-tion flows into the revaluation and job planning process to ensure a professional educator workforce delivering the best training for the best patient care.
