B15 (2): The Facilitated Remote Multidisciplinary Team Meeting – making remote MDTs the highlight of medical student placements

Session speaker(s):
Dr James Hartley
Dr David Meek
Dr Laura Succony

Session objectives:

  • Critically analyse the remote MDT as a learning opportunity for medical students in various stages of their development
  • Consider and evaluate an innovative approach maximising the value of the remote MDT as a teaching opportunity
  • Reflect on how this ties in with socio-cultural learning theories of legitimate peripheral participation and inspires further innovations

Session summary:
MDTs are often described as important learning opportunities for medical students. However, students often struggle to feel involved and learn. We have pioneered a new format where student access to the remote MDT is facilitated by a clinician, with great success, paving the way for further similar innovations.

Session hosted by:

Session theme:
Teaching and facilitating learning
