ISC Medical Comments on Medical Training Budget Cutbacks

London, United Kingdom, (25th January, 2012) – One of the country’s leading providers of medical interviews and interview skills consultancy services, ISC Medical, comments on how medical training budget cutbacks will affect the efficiency of the NHS.

With the dwindling of NHS training budgets, junior doctors and consultants have been increasingly required to demonstrate personal involvement and initiative to train other colleagues. ISC Medical believes that although this is nothing new, what is different is the need to carry this out in an efficient manner. The leading interview skills consultancy believes the days of endless lectures and inefficient teaching sessions are gone, and a more focussed approach is required to save time and money.

Olivier Picard, MD of ISC Medical, commented: “A stronger emphasis on appraisals, assessments and other forms of quality of assurance is forcing doctors to acquire real coaching skills to replace the often haphazard nature of teaching in the past. Teaching, training and coaching skills need to be nurtured and developed in order to increase the quality and the efficiency of the education process.

“The Teach the Teachers course we run allows doctors to expand on their teaching and presentation skills, whilst gaining the confidence to provide various types of training and give effective, constructive feedback. This will afford doctors the opportunity to become more proactive when organising and delivering training, in order to make their workforce more productive and efficient.”
