17-18 April 2002 Traditional approaches to learning and teaching assume that it is normal for the older generation to guide, mentor, train and teach the young. What would happen if we were to challenge the normal paradigm and asked the young to teach their elders? We have just received funding to set up such a project and the presentation will report on this work. The aim of the Empowering Consultants Scheme is to test the feasibility of using young medical students to assist senior clinicians in making effective use of electronic resources in their teaching role. NHS doctors who have teaching contracts will be assigned a personal trainer with advanced IT skills. We shall be working with the NHS to recruit 30 consultants and Specialists Registrars to take part. All the trainers will be medical students who have taken part in our peer assisted learning programme. The presentation will explain the method and outline our findings.
