Major changes continue to occur in medical education. There are increasing external and internal pressures to improve the quality of courses and the teaching performance of individual staff. Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1983, the Handbook for Medical Teachers has established itself as an ideal resource for both new and established teachers in an area where there is very little other support. It successfully combines basic educational principles with a how-to approach in a very readable way, supported by numerous illustrations and cartoons. This third edition has been extensively revised throughout to reflect the many changes in medical education since the last edition. There is a new chapter on problem-based learning as well as an appendix on how to keep a teaching portfolio as a support for academic promotion or staff appraisal. A Handbook for Medical Teachers is essential reading for all those involved in any area of medical teaching and research.
David Newble is Professor and Head of the Department of Medical Education at the University of Sheffield, UK, and was previously Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.
