This paper will focus on the development of a series of two-hour workshops on ‘Intimate Examinations’ for 3rd Year medical students within the Clinical Skills Department at the University of Southampton. It will identify the benefits of using “simulated patients” (actors) in assisting medical students’ learning; and will contrast this with traditionally-used methods of teaching and assessing medical students’ communication skills. Consideration will also be given to techniques for monitoring the teaching, learning and assessment strategies of the workshops, which will be reflected upon in the context of the wider development of medical education both at the University of Southampton and nationally.
