Summary of theme and why it is important:  Due to the ever-increasing demand on health services worldwide, there can often be a conflict between the provision of high-quality teaching and effective service provision.  Increased clinical workloads, the demand for time- efficiency, changing working patterns and increased staff turnover have spelt the end of the traditional apprenticeship model of the medical ‘firm’. Teaching ward rounds are undermined a demand to see more patients in the same amount of time. Opportunities to discuss cases within the same teams of people can seem few and far between and the same is true of outpatient clinics, theatre lists, or even critical care environments. 
Nonetheless, our learners still deserve high quality teaching in the clinical environment. Similarly, investing in the education of healthcare professionals in training is essential for the production of an effective workforce for the future. All of this begs us to question how we can adapt traditional teaching methods to suit the healthcare professionals of the 21st century?
This interactive workshop will explore challenges and opportunities for effective teaching in busy clinical environments. Through discussion with participants and practical examples we will offer strategies to capitalise on precious time to optimise learning in the clinical environment.

Who should participate in the Pre-Conference Workshop?  TAll senior clinicians who interact with trainees and medical students.  All medical students and trainees who interact with senior clinicians.

What will they gain from participating?  We will host an interactive workshop based around the current state of clinical teaching. We will examine the challenges of current clinical environments for the delivery of medical training and potential solutions to overcome these challenges. However, we will also consider and the novel opportunities 21st century clinical practice offers to current and future generations of medical trainees and how attendees can maximise educational opportunities while maintaining an effective clinical service
