Welcome to the eagerly awaited winter instalment of UCLMS news. We introduce a new editorial team (John-george Nicholson, Paul McGovern and myself) who join Deanne Attreed. This term, lots of new faces have been welcomed to the UCLMS offices (also new!) so we have a special focus on staff and their roles in this issue. Included is also a letter from Professor Dacre, summing up the year and congratulating staff on the successful office relocation.
Anyone involved with UCLMS will not have failed to notice the arrival of doctors from Ningbo in China. They are taking part in a 16-week long professional development venture where they will be immersed in our undergraduate curriculum so that they can learn about the way we teach our medical students at UCLMS. Some of our articles focus on their visit so please do have a read and find out more about what has been going on.

Earlier in the term we sent out a survey asking for suggestions of how to improve this bulletin. In particular, we wanted to find out if readers would rather an online version or paper copy. Responses were favourable and it seems that an online version is preferred. Feedback on this issue, its layout, content and readability are welcomed.
So I’ll keep it brief and end the introduction there. There are lots of great articles inside. We hope you enjoy the latest offering from UCLMS news. On behalf of the rest of the team we’d like to wish you a happy Christmas and holiday season. We will see many of you at the Christmas quiz on the 16th but for those not able to make it, see you back in January! Enjoy those mince pies!
With best wishes
Clinical Teaching Fellow
