Description: Curriculum planners can both design the curriculum on paper and devise methods for its delivery. However, the hidden curriculum, that is the way in which students can learn to work efficiently and to the maximum benefit of their patients and themselves, is often passed on to students by role models. This important aspect of medical education may often be overlooked by curriculum delivery planers. This paper describes a clinical environment in which experiential learning takes place supported by a carefully designed multimedia package in a setting in which students are exposed to the hidden curriculum by selected interns who display a high level of professionalism.
