Green Templeton College aims to offer a very high level of academic support including weekly seminars (usually every Tuesday evening, all year round) on core aspects of the curriculum and also provides regular bedside teaching in small groups during Year 4 and Year 6, and some tutorials in Year 5.
College-based teaching is organised and provided mainly by a number of Joan and Richard Doll Clinical Tutorial Fellows. As of November 2015 they are Dr Laurence Leaver, Prof Martin Turner, Dr Becks Fisher and Mr Zeeshan Akhtar. Dr Alex Finlayson looks after Graduate Entry students. They are helped by up to 30 'Teaching Associates' who are mostly Specialty Trainees.
Senior members serve as College Advisers (every medical student at Green Templeton has a College Adviser who is clinically qualified), help with teaching, mentor students carrying out projects, and help with arranging electives and with careers advice. Over 20 Fellows are medically qualified, and many other doctors are Members of Common Room.
The Teaching Programme won awards from the University for 'Excellence in Teaching' in 2006 and 2013 (and was also nominated in 2009). The College also hosts a number of eminent formal lectures relevant to medicine, as well as the Management in Medicine programme. The Richard Doll Society (medsoc) holds various events (such as speaker meetings, social and networking/careers etc) which can include alumni.
