After over 30 years in medical education, it has been very refreshing to read this book and realize that I still have more to learn.The authors build a bridge between educational principles and teaching in community clinical settings. An invaluable resource to community practitioners with a teaching role whether they are new to teaching or have had learners in their practice for many years.' Roger Strasser, in the Foreword As medical education evolves and becomes more evenly distributed between formal, university-based instruction and practical, work-based guidance, busy clinicians are increaslingly involved in training. Without formal teaching expertise, these clinicians often struggle with aspects of medical education, experience feelings of isolation, and are in need of teaching support. This comprehensive handbook provides a concise overview of information required to implement up-to-date educational strategies, offers direction on academic principles and teaches clinicians how to manage learners. Designed specifically with busy physicians in mind, it is organized to act as both a quick trouble-shooting resource and a reflective educational guide. Community-based medical educators will find this manual stimulating reading, as will all clinicians in medical education. Anne Stephenson is Director of Community Education and King's College London.
