It is gratifying to have another research paper published in the journal “Medical Education” after peer review.
See: Mossop, L., Dennick, R., Hammond, R., & Robbé, I. J. (2013) Analysing the Hidden Curriculum: Use of a Cultural Web. Medical Education, 47, 134–143.
The research links with the paper last year: Robbé, I. J. & Burnie, R. (2012) Breaking with Tradition: Case Studies and Role-play. Medical Education, 46, 1106-1107.
One particular link between the two papers is the importance of medical educators having an authentic commitment to teaching and not principally a commitment to research. The learners can swiftly detect the tutors who are serious about teaching and facilitating their learning in medicine. Also they can detect the tutors who are appropriate role models to help the learners develop their individual professional identities.
