Learning and Surviving: an outsider looking in at the working lives of doctors

Medicine is a career that requires doctors to continually reflect, learn and develop throughout their working life.

Professor Jeremy Brown’s inaugural lecture will look back on the 17 years he has spent working with hospital doctors and General Practitioners (GPs).  He will address some of the ongoing challenges faced by doctors at each stage of their professional career, from newly qualified to hospital consultant or GP.

This lecture will consider the multiple roles of doctors as clinicians, learners, educators and leaders.  In doing so Jeremy will reflect on the current state of medical education research as an academic discipline and consider where our research priorities should lie in relation to postgraduate training and patient care.

Jeremy Brown became Professor of Clinical Education at Edge Hill University in August 2015.  He has published over 40 academic articles, including an editorial in the British Medical Journal regarding the durability of medical career choices. He is a core member of the Association for the Study of Medical Education (ASME) Research Group, leading the organisation of their annual Researching Medical Education Research Conference in London.  In 2015 he was awarded the ‘Excellent Medical Education’ prize from the General Medical Council and ASME.
