Teaching and Learning in Clinical Settings

Richard Hays Richard Hays, MBBS, PhD, MD, Dip RACOG, FRACGP, FACRRM, is Professor of Medical Education at the School of Medicine, James Cook University. He began professional life as a rural procedural general practitioner, but after 10 years of full-time practice, he became aware of how little he knew about the teaching/learning process when he was asked to supervise GP Registrars. He developed a strong interest in how medical graduates learn to become competent practitioners and this led to his academic career.
Since then he has researched and published extensively in medical education, rural health and clinical practice. Over the last 15 years, he has been involved in most major developments in medical education within Australian general practice and rural medicine. In 1999, he lead the establishment of a new medical school at James Cook University, where primary care has played a major role in the curriculum. He has taught as Visiting Professor in both the USA and UK and from 2006, is working in the UK at Keele University helping a medical school develop a new curriculum. Throughout his career Richard has sought to find ways to make medical education more enjoyable and effective.
