VTS Teaching Program

Teaching obligations for all trainees

The success of your learning as and individual and as a group depends on your commitment and contribution to the scheme.  Please ensure that you:

  • Regularly check website so that you know where and when sessions are being held
  • Be prepared for the topics of the day
  • Arrive on time
  • Let us know of any absences using the Teaching Absence form or if you are going to be late.  Make sure you sign in on arrival at each session
  • Play an active part in the group
  • Be respectful and supportive of each other
  • Prepare some sessions yourselves as appropriate
  • Spend some time presenting to the rest of the group
  • Reflect on every session and keep a log of your experiences in your e-portfolio
  • Build all this into your PDP
  • Give constructive feedback to the speakers, course organizers or registrar representative as required. There will be a feedback form to complete for each session
  • Obtain a copy of Good Medical Practice for General Practice and read it! This sets out the duties of a good GP and is also the format used for GP appraisals
  • Familiarize yourself with the contents of the Gold Guide
  • Enjoy your time as a registrar!
