Authors designed 12+1 roles of the good medical student to complement Harden’s 12 roles of the teacher and grouped them into six areas:

  1. Information receiver, in lectures and clinical context;
  2. Role model in learning and in class;
  3. Teaching facilitator and teacher’s mentor;
  4. Teacher’s assessor and curriculum evaluator
  5. Active participator and keeping up with curriculum
  6. Resource consumer and co-creator and medical literature researcher.

Although described for medical students, many of these principles can be applied by students at any level.
