Editorial Reviews

"This then is the book for the modern clinical teacher. It is a comprehensive and evidence based guide to all those who have a role or an interest in the training and education of doctors. And, unlike many other textbooks in the field, it covers the educational principles, the underpinningevidence, and the application of what is known to all aspects of medical education from curriculum design to standard setting for assessment, and from selecting students for medical school to continuing professional development of practicing clinicians." --John Bligh, Professor of Medical Education, Cardiff University, UK
