  • MorBLIME 2019

    Mon, 15th October 2018

    We have been made aware that the criteria for MorBLIME is not very clear. We have tweaked the wording to hope this helps makes the criteria clear. We apologise for any confusion caused.

    MorBLIME is a course that builds on the Core Leadership Skills covered in the successful CorBLIME course and is aimed at Leaders in Medical Education who have been in post AND a NACT UK Member for a MINIMUM OF 3 YEARS without first taking CorBLIME (If CorBLIME has been attended you may attend MorBLIME after TWO years).

    This meeting will commence with an evening workshop followed by a working dinner, and the following day will be intensive updating the fast changes in PGME.

    Our next MorBLIME is running on Tuesday 1st & Wednesday 2nd October 2019 at the Hallmark Hotel The Welcome, Stratford Upon Avon.

  • Travelling Fellowship 2019

    Fri, 24th August 2018

    Please do not forget that you can apply for the NACT UK Fellowship to North Carolina.

    Introduction

    Those who have been NACT UK Members for a minimum of 2 years and have regularly attended NACT UK meetings are eligible to apply for the annual NACT UK Fellowship to North Carolina, which is supported to the value of £3000.  The aim of the Fellowship is to provide an opportunity for a member to experience another healthcare system and study some aspect of postgraduate or continuing medical education. It is expected that the Fellowship will change the way you view, understand or practice some aspect of your role in medical education.

     

    Time

    The Fellowship is for 2-4 weeks and is usually taken late summer/early autumn. Most Fellows spend a month away and are encouraged to include some holiday within this time. Many have found this sabbatical stimulating, exciting and for many a life changing experience, with the break from routine duties invigorating.

     

    North Carolina

    The Fellow will gain a broad experience of medical education in North Carolina as well as sampling some legendary American hospitality and seeing many parts of this beautiful area of the United States.  This is part of a reciprocal arrangement NACT UK has with AHEC at Chapel Hill in North Carolina and each year a Fellow from AHEC visits the UK. The Fellow will be hosted by AHEC colleagues across North Carolina and flown round the State in a light aircraft.

     

    Application

    To apply for this Fellowship, members are asked to submit a proposal outlining what they would use the Fellowship for and how it would contribute to their professional and personal development in medical education.

    • Applications should be submitted by email to the office by 28 September 2018
    • The interviews are held in London from 3.30pm on Thursday 18 October 2018 and applicants must be available for this.
    • Applicants must be current Members of NACT UK.
    • On return Fellows are expected to write an article for Clinical Tutor and to present at the following Annual Spring Meeting.
