Teaching teachers in general practice

, : Teaching teachers in general practice. Medical Education 11(1): 48-52

A short, intensive, teacher training course for general practitioners is described. The assessment techniques used indicate that it went some way towards achieving predetermined goals. Set alongside the limited time available to practitioners for attending training courses, and the logistic problems of training an adequate supply of teachers, this experience suggests that short intensive courses may have an important role in professional education.

The present study was the first to use the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) methodology to investigate the neural correlates of race categorization of own- and other-race faces. We found that Chinese participants categorized the race o...
