TASME Logo RGB

    TASME was proud to support The HLA-Medics.Academy Summit 2021 on the 29-30th May 2021. The summit sought to deliver the very best of medical education innovation to a local and global audience. The conference started with lessons from yester years from Professor Dame Praveen Kumar from ‘Kumar and Clarke's Clinical Medicine’ on the changing role of the doctor. Kumar described the paradigm shift that has seen clinicians pursue a more varied portfolio career, instead of the traditional tunnel vision clinical route. She explained how burnout and the increasing preference for more flexibility is causing clinicians to pursue a variety of career options.

      I'm Jo, I’m queer and non-binary (pronouns they/them) and I’m a specialist registrar in genitourinary medicine and HIV in London. I’m excited to put in motion my vision for transgender and non-binary clinician mentorship, and grateful to TASME for this opportunity. As trans and non binary (T/NB) people, we face daily struggles both within a healthcare context and in wider society. Barely a day seems to go by without a disparaging newspaper article or Twitter attack. Gender affirming healthcare has been stretched to the limit, with T/NB people facing down either multiple-year waits for first appointments, or bills of thousands of pounds to go private. Even working within the NHS, transgender staff report high levels of bullying and discrimination (Stonewall Trans Report, 2008). Clinicians in primary and secondary care may be tempted to dismiss trans health issues as rare, and therefore not worth devoting precious learning-time to. After...

    Review of ‘Miro’ a collaborative online white-board used at the TASME Workshop ‘Clinical Teaching Problems: Pop Up Peer Solutions’ at the Ten Years of TASME: TASME’s Travel Through Time Conference As part of the TASME Conference ‘Ten Years of TASME: TASME’s Travel Through Time’ in association with MedAll on Saturday 15th May, a few of the TASME committee members decided to run a workshop entitled ‘Clinical Teaching Problems: Pop Up Peer Solutions’. The TASME committee identified some clear challenges when we, as trainees, design, deliver and evaluate clinical teaching so we wanted to create a buzzing hive-mind whereby other trainees could gather to discuss their own challenges and help one another to come up with peer-peer solutions. Before the workshop, the TASME committee collected common clinical teaching problems from their peers, colleagues and from the international Medical Education community via Twitter. The workshop started by introducing some common themes...
