What do patient educators say about the programme?
Current patient educators in our programme enjoy their role and make an important contribution to the education of the next generation of young doctors:
"It felt good to see that the students were beginning to understand the impact of managing type 1 diabetes.” Hazel, patient educator.
“Sharing my past experiences, both good and bad, helps ‘Tomorrow’s Doctors’ have a better understanding of the skills they need to provide the communication and care the patient needs.” Mike, patient educator.
"These sessions with real patients help hone student communication skills and give them an invaluable insight into the issues that people with a chronic condition face." David, patient educator.
