General practitioners (GPs) should develop sound learning
habits to ensure successful independent, life-long learning
throughout their professional life. However, GPs with their busy schedules usually face numerous daily demands leaving
considerably little time for effective self-study. Trainees need to realise that learning is not merely to pass examinations but to continually keep up-to-date with the ever-increasing knowledge and developments in medicine to remain a competent medical practitioner. Think of self-directed learning (SDL) methods that you may have used successfully and share these with your students. As their teacher or mentor you can certainly guide students to learn in a better way. Picking up these skills early, for example during the vocational or masters training period, will be advantageous to the learner. The following sections suggest some strategies to encourage and hone SDL skills in learners under your supervision.
