Laiba Rahman, a 4th year medical student and graduate of the BSc in Applied Health (Medical Education) at the University of Leeds requests participants for an online interview focused on your educational role. Laiba details the project further:

'Last year, for my intercalated research project in medical education, I explored the educational role of surgeons, focusing particularly on how surgical educators engage in critical reflection on their education practice. For my upcoming Extended Student Research and Evaluation Project (ESREP), I wish to build upon my previous research and explore more broadly how surgeons in the UK develop their educational practice. For example, how surgeons improve their teaching skills, what motivates surgeons to develop their teaching practice and the barriers they face when seeking additional teacher training. Gaining a fuller understanding of how surgeons develop as educators is something I am very passionate about.'

I invite you to participate in an online interview, where you will be asked about your educational role. The interview should not take longer than one hour and will take place on Microsoft Teams at a time that is convenient for you, outside of your NHS working hours. Participation in this interview is entirely voluntary.'
