Abstract

It is increasingly being recognised that medical education research and scholarship are essential if we are to provide innovative, research-informed teaching to medical students. Developing a discrete pathway for the professional development of clinical educators side by side with clinical training would enable such training to be offered to high caliber candidates. However, the challenges faced by clinical educators trying to deliver both the clinical and educational components of their training to a high standard must not be underestimated. In addition, employing institutions need to consider and agree criteria for career progression of these clinical academics. Identifying a mentor who can guide professional development is crucial, particularly in the early stages.
