Clinical Educator Programme

Annual Symposium

This year's Clinical Educator Programme’s Annual Symposium took place on the 9th November 2023.

The venue was The University of Edinburgh's Chancellor's Building, at Little France and it was an in-person event. The symposium had a “Sharing Good Practice in Clinical Education” theme.

The CEP Annual Symposium is an opportunity to:

  • Update the clinical educator community in Southeast Scotland on recent or current activity related to learning and teaching
  • Identify and develop collaborations within the community
  • Raise the profile of clinical education within Southeast Scotland

This year, the CEP Annual Symposium took the form of short talks and posters.  Short talks took the form of a 10-15 minute oral presentation followed by 5 minutes for questions. Poster presentations were presented by the authors using a “datablitz” format, where presenters had the opportunity to give a 1-minute summary of the key points of their work, using 1 slide.  Please see the recording of the event below.
