Date: Wednesday 22 June
Time: 11.55 - 13.10
Stream: Education and Training

This session will explore undergraduate education from both a global and UK perspective. This includes disseminating the findings of a mixed-methods research project, exploring the organisation and delivery of undergraduate psychiatry across UK medical schools. The session will share innovations in psychiatric education and real working examples of how medical schools are promoting high quality psychiatric teaching. This session will be invaluable for any medical educator who is keen to improve the provision of undergraduate psychiatry teaching at their affiliated medical school.
