The Benefits of Being a Near-Peer Teacher

Published: 11 April 2018

A well-established near-peer teaching programme has become an integral part of neuroanatomy teaching at Southampton and while the benefits of near-peer teaching for the learner have been well researched, less is known about its impact on medical job applications.

Scott Border and his student team found that seven of the eight practising doctors who replied to a questionnaire reported gaining points on their Foundation Programme applications as a direct result of near-peer teaching and that teachers believed the experience improved their knowledge of the subject and furthered their academic careers.

You can find out more about it in their article in The Clinical teacher (2018) below.
