A Handbook for Medical Teachers
Since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1983, "A Handbook for Medical Teachers" has established itself as a resource for both new and established teachers in an area where there is very little other support. It combines basic educational principles with a "how-to" approach in a 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. This handbook should provide useful reading for all those involved in any area of medical teaching and research.
