What is a medical educator
Medical educators are GPs with a passion for education. In fact doctors have long held a tradition of teaching.
What do they do
Medical educators work in regional training organisations educating and training GP registrars and helping them prepare for the RACGP Fellowship examinations; offering support throughout the lifelong learning journey and contributing to continuing professional development.
The Hippocratic Oath refers to the importance of teaching and mentoring. Even the origins of the word 'doctor' come from the Old French for 'teacher', based on the Latin 'docere' (Oxford English Dictionary).
