Further resources in this section

As part of your responsibilities to medical students, you should:

  • Encourage and support medical students.
  • Involve yourself actively in teaching if students are attached to your team.
  • Be aware of the professional competencies to be achieved by the students.
  • Explain to patients that they have the right to refuse to participate in student teaching and reassure patients that such a refusal will not prejudice their treatment in any way.
  • Ensure that students are introduced to patients.
  • Ensure that patient privacy and confidentiality are maintained and that students understand and respect this requirement.
  • Ensure that when a student is involved in specific examinations or procedures on patients under general anaesthesia, written consent has been obtained on the full extent of the student’s involvement.
