Welcome to Medical Education Leeds
Improving patient safety, outcomes and experience is paramount within the NHS. This depends on addressing the learning needs of all clinical staff at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and as part of continuing professional development.
Medical Education Leeds has developed a team - clinicians, educationalists, IT and educational technologists, technicians, librarians and administrators - working together to support those delivering education and training - from booking a room for teaching, through to working with a Head of School to develop a course from scratch.
What we do
As described in 'A Framework for Technology Enhanced Learning' (DH 2011) innovative educational technologies such as simulation, e-learning and smart-phones provide unprecedented opportunities for health and social care students, trainees and staff to acquire, develop and maintain the essential knowledge, skills, values and behaviours needed for safe and effective patient care, as part of a managed learning process.
Significant investment has been made by the SHA and the Yorkshire and the Humber Deanery in providing clinical skills and simulation facilities within Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. The Medical Education Leeds team are working with other partners, including the University of Leeds School of Medicine and Postgraduate Deanery, to develop new courses as part of our vision for developing a blended approach to learning.
