Perceived tutor benefits of teaching near peers: insights from two near peer teaching programmes in South East Scotland (Medical Teacher)

Increasing emphasis is being placed on training to teach and teaching opportunities for doctors at all career stages. A number of junior doctor-led teaching programmes have been described in the literature, with some evidence suggesting that students perceived such programmes of similar quality to teaching from senior faculty. Two such programmes in South East Scotland are ‘Bedside Teachers’ (teaching clinical examination on real patients) and ‘Year 5 Prescribing’ (teaching practical prescribing). We evaluated the benefits of participating in these programmes.
