Aimed at junior doctors, created by junior doctors and medical students. Those who are most in contact with clinical teaching and experience the difficulties of it everyday.
Created with consultants from several hospitals from conception to birth – guiding us with their teaching training and decades of experience between them.
Dr Aayushi Sen completed her pre-clinical studies at the University of Cambridge, graduating with a BA Neuroscience (Hons.) and her clinical studies at Imperial College, London, graduating with a Distinction in Clinical Sciences. She completed an Academic Foundation Programme at the University Hospitals of Leicester, where she conducted research into ILC2 cells in wheezing children; the results of which have been presented at multiple international conferences globally. She then worked in emergency medicine and cardiology at a major tertiary Cardio-thoracic centre in Brisbane, Australia. During this time she also co-authored The Ultimate OSCE History Guide; a textbook to help medical students crack the secret to passing the pesky OSCE exams. She is currently an Academic Clinical Fellow in Neurology in Oxford.
She launched into working on Erudical (formerly Teacher of Tomorrow) after realising the difficulty faced by junior doctors wanting further training in teaching, and the lack of comprehensive options online. It proved to be a delightful challenge that has resulted in the lauded teaching course you see today.
Dr Rohan Agarwal is Director of Operations at UniAdmissions. He graduated from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, and is now a fully qualified Doctor. Over the last five years, he has tutored hundreds of successful Oxbridge and Medical applicants and authored fifty books on admissions tests and interviews. He has taught physiology to undergraduates and interviewed medical school applicants for Cambridge. He has also published research on bone physiology and writes education articles for the Independent and Huffington Post.
He got involved in Erudical to help students and doctors once they were fully qualified. With years of teaching and training in teaching behind him, he has been invaluable in providing guidance on the most important and practical things needed in day-to-day teaching. He hopes passing on his hard earned knowledge will serve you well in the future.
