Scotland - home of medical excellence

Trainer Information


When it comes to medical education and training, have you ever asked ‘how can we do this better?’ or ‘does someone, somewhere, already have a solution to our problem?’ or perhaps you have introduced a new way of teaching that works well and you want others to know about it. SHARE holds solutions to the challenges of how to deliver education and training well.

The Scotland Deanery Quality Team has developed SHARE to showcase the ideas and examples of good practice that you have been involved with. We hope you will SHARE in this exciting opportunity to promote excellence in postgraduate and undergraduate medical education & training in Scotland & elsewhere, so that others can learn: ‘what can be done’, ‘how to make it happen’ and ‘who to contact for more information’.

It’s easy to SHARE: To contribute and help others benefit from your experience simply review our acceptance criteria, download and complete our case study template and submit it to the SHARE website.
