Professor Paul Kinnersley

Prof Paul Kinnersley is a general practitioner in Cardiff but his main job is to be in charge of teaching Cardiff University medical students how to talk to patients: Learning how to talk. This may sound simple but students need to be experts at helping patients who are in pain or feeling ill or worried or all three!


They also need to be able to explain the diseases that patients are suffering and the treatments they will need: Smoothing the transitions.


He is  also developing new teaching to help students make the change from school student to medical student and then from student to doctor.This is a big change for the students to make and they need opportunities to think about what they have learnt and what else they need to learn.


This teaching will also be helping students appreciate the qualities that make a really good doctor - and helping them become good doctors.
