About the Leonardo LEVEL 1 course:

Over recent years a greater proportion of the teaching at undergraduate level is being provided by primary health care teachers, including general practice based teaching, clinical skills training etc. This has led to an increase in the demand for teachers coming from a practice setting. There is a similar need for trainers involved in specialty training for general practice. One-to-one teaching in the practice setting requires the application of specific methodologies and evaluation techniques, which may involve the patient with possible consequences to his/her health status. It also requires special knowledge and skills in feedback, and a close working relationship between trainee and trainer.

The Leonardo EURACT level 1 course is aimed at entrants to practice based teaching with no prior teaching skills training. Its main objectives are to improve the level of one-to-one teaching in European countries, to ensure dissemination of knowledge and skills by course participants in their own countries and to stimulate the development of FM teaching in participating countries.

The course will consist of six 3-hour modules delivered over three days of educational interventions. Each participant will able to access course materials for each module prior to the course. A minimum of presentations are used and most learning is active and participatory in small groups.
