Who we are

The Clinical Skills Team are a group of doctors from a variety of clinical backgrounds with expertise in medical education. This gives us a wealth of knowledge and experience that we can share with our students. The team is led by Dr Robert Nagaj, Head of Clinical Skills.

What we do

Teaching

The team delivers the clinical skills MBBS curriculum to over 1,000 medical students on all our MBBS courses giving our students a strong foundation in all aspects of clinical examination, practical and procedural skills.

We create a safe and supportive environment where students feel empowered to develop their skills using extensive resources in a simulated clinical environment during weekly small group sessions. Our lecturers facilitate high quality active learning through practical activities with a strong emphasis on integration of communication skills and multidisciplinary work in a clinical setting.

One of the highlights of the St George’s MBBS curriculum is that students start learning clinical skills from day one and follow an intensive clinical skills course in the early years. These practical sessions are followed by clinical visits where students can immediately apply their newly developed skills during interactions with real patients.

We are proud to receive consistently excellent feedback from our learners.

Professional training
