Recognition of Teaching Scheme (RoT)

The RoT scheme provides motivating Psychiatry teaching for GKT medical students within a supportive “teach the teacher” environment.

Dynamic teaching seminars are provided by enthusiastic Core Trainee (CT) Psychiatry doctors who have recent experience with OSCEs and learning early psychiatric skills.

More senior Speciality Trainee (ST) Psychiatry doctors observe the session and support the Core Trainee’s development of educational skills.

Why we exist?
The RoT hopes to create a culture of striving for continued development on the core skills required to meet clinical governance standards around teaching.
GMC good medical practice reports that “doctors must teach their peers and medical and other health and social care students under guidance, if required to do so, using appropriate skills and methods.
Also, contribute to the appraisal assessment or review of students and other colleagues they work with.”
