Centrally organised bedside teaching led by junior doctors

Zeshan Qureshi, Matthew Seah, Michael Ross, Simon Maxwell

Clinical bedside teaching is arguably the most favoured form of teaching by medical students, but has been on the decline in recent years. Junior doctors are often underused as teachers and, with adequate training, may help to solve this problem. Bedside Teachers is a junior doctor-led teaching programme that is delivered throughout South-East Scotland, and is now in its third year. This study aimed to investigate the perceptions of final-year medical students participating in the Bedside Teachers programme, and how they compared this with teaching from senior staff.
