Abstract

The UK General Medical Council (GMC) requires all UK Medical Schools to formally recognise trainers performing ‘named roles’ in undergraduate medical education. A staff development programme has been designed and implemented by the School of Medicine, University of Dundee. The programme has been made available to staff working within the School of Medicine and its partner organisations. Lessons learned through the process include, a need for: face-to-face interaction and dialogue with educators, readily available and accessible local CPD opportunities, establishment of local communities of practice, and a clear message to educators that the complexity of the ‘Recognition of Trainers’ process is at the organisational (rather than the individual) level.
