Welcome to SEFCE

SEFCE stands for the South East Faculty of Clinical Educators and members are any clinical teaching/training staff across South East Scotland.

SEFCE is a partnership between the three regional Health Boards in SE Scotland [Lothian, Fife, Borders], the SE Scotland Deanery of NHS Education for Scotland, University of St Andrews Medical School and the University of Edinburgh Medical School.

The aim is

  • to share and coordinate our approach to training and accrediting our teachers and trainers;
  • to improve the quality of medical teaching and training through faculty development across the South-east Scotland area; and
  • to facilitate the management issues such as the delivery of teaching/ training and job planning.

We do this by sharing a very successful Clinical Educator Programme (CEP) and other courses; at least annual symposia, approach to recognition of teachers/trainers, and by making sure that leaders in postgraduate and undergraduate spheres meet regularly to coordinate what we are doing, through the SEFCE Board

SEFCE aims to hold at least one Symposium per year, to which all SEFCE members will be invited to attend.
