The 2016 Aungshuk Ghosh e-Learning Prize presentations took place at the Student Excellence in Medicine event in the Great Hall on Friday 26th February. We were treated to three excellent and inspiring presentations by our three shortlisted students.
The panel awarded the annual prize to 4th year student Claire Scrivener for her ‘digital approach to the digital rectal exam’ e-tutorial. Claire produced an excellent educational resource on a topic that her needs analysis suggested many students feel inadequately trained to perform. She used instructional videos and a variety of activities to teach students both how to consent a patient and complete the DRE. In her presentation, Claire said that she wanted to be a teacher before she decided to train as a medic, and that her SSC project gave her an opportunity to combine her two interests. Claire is currently working on a research study based on her project; her e-tutorial will be published when the study has finished.
