As a clinical trainee, you may be presented with teaching opportunities, but these are often opportunistic. Clinical training rarely provides sufficient flexibility to commit to developing substantial teaching roles. As you progress towards CCT and into a consultant post, you may be interested in developing a clinical teaching career but feel unclear about how to navigate this. Many skills that you have developed in your clinical training including communication, organisation and team working are really valued for teaching roles. Teaching provides a wide variety of opportunities depending on your skill sets and what you enjoy. For example, involvement in curriculum development and assessment can allow you to focus on academic progression, but many teaching roles involve pastoral care and mentoring, supporting students or trainees in difficulty. I have really enjoyed my involvement in undergraduate and postgraduate education. I will describe my own experiences in developing a clinical teaching career, combining clinical work with teaching roles at Imperial College London. I will discuss how to find out what teaching opportunities are available and how to develop a portfolio of teaching, including recommended teaching qualifications.
