Read how students have used reflection to make changes and improve their interactions with patients.
Student professionalism competition on reflective practice
We ran a competition with the Medical Schools Council in 2018, asking students to create a teaching session on reflective practice and its importance for medical students.
The winner designed a teaching session inspired by a ‘Trip Advisor’ approach, to help doctors reflect on their own practice. Other runners up and shortlisted entries include exploring the relationship with reflection and wellbeing, and considering reflection as integral to life rather than a tick box exercise.
