I have read with great interest the article by Olasoji,1 demonstrating how “toxic” teaching methods are still very much prevalent, and damaging, within medical teaching. As a final-year medical student who has experienced “toxic” teaching throughout several of my clinical attachments, I felt that I should share my opinion, and how this may affect future clinical practices.
