ENT undergraduate teaching
Dr Trish MacFarlane is the lead for medical student teaching at Flinders University and Flinders Medical Centre. She has updated the medical student teaching program with a hands on approach to teaching basic ENT skills such as using a thudicum’s speculum, how to do otoscopy in children, using tuning forks, and interpreting audiograms. Dr MacFarlane has developed a MCQ test on basic ENT knowledge at the end of the medical student teaching program to assess their learning. Dr MacFarlane and Dr Ooi also actively teach medical students in clinics, on ward rounds and in the operating theatre. Several medical students under our supervision have successfully completed audit projects with the ENT Surgery Unit at Flinders Medical Centre, resulting in improvements in treatment protocols for ENT patients.
