Through funding from the Medical Training and Review Panel, the Teaching on the Run Tips series has been published in the Medical Journal of Australia.
The 14 tips cover a wide range of clinical teaching topics.
The tips incorporate educational theory, practical information and ideas for implementation. Each topic is of high interest to doctors who are teaching in their practice. Intrinsic to the resource is the recognition that the clinical environment provides enormous opportunities for effective experiential learning.
