Tom has been successfully teaching medical students at the University of Birmingham for the past three years.
He has introduced innovative methods of teaching and visual materials which focus on exploring the phenomenology and function of common psychiatric symptoms. This includes; use of thought experiments, interactive exercises, descriptions from lived experience and presence of expert patients. He aims to help students to understand and relate to patient experiences and deconstruct stigmatising preconceptions. Dr Dalton aims to launch a website for “GetPsychEd” in order to disseminate his teaching materials on various psychiatry topics.
