We are delighted to announce that following the visit to RGUC by the medical school on 19th March, we have received a very positive report.
The visit forms part of the University of Birmingham’s routine clinical monitoring visit process to quality assure teaching on the MBChB Programme. It normally takes place every 2-3 years. During the visit, members of the panel meet with numerous individuals involved in the delivery of undergraduate medical education. This includes the head of academy and deputies, administration team, medical students, tutors / teachers, teaching fellows, clinical skills, simulation staff and media team. In addition to this, the panel also has discussions with senior Trust management, including the chief executive.
The overall feedback from the visit was very positive, with some key areas of notable practice…
- The academy is well-run and well-resourced, with a developed structure.
- There is strong leadership within the academy and across the whole structure.
- The experience and knowledge of relevant teams ensures excellent implementation of interprofessional education.
- There is a clear educational culture at The Dudley Group
The report made a couple of recommendations following the visit, and we are already in the process of putting these into place.
We would like to thank all members of staff and students for their contributions during the monitoring visit.
