The University of Cambridge Postgraduate Diploma [PGDip] in Clinical Medicine has been designed collaboratively by the University of Cambridge, Institute of Continuing Education; and the School of Clinical Medicine’s Clinical Deanery. The PGDip is a continuation of the Postgraduate Certificate [PGCert] in Clinical Research, Education and Leadership and provides a progression route to the one year Masters [MSt] in Clinical Medicine. It is a one-year, part-time Master’s-level course resulting in 60 FHEQ Level-7 credits and the University of Cambridge award. This one-year course is open to all healthcare staff and includes units on healthcare informatics; advanced clinical leadership and quality improvement; and healthcare law. It is suited for doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals. The course is taught part-time and is designed to be flexible and accessible to working healthcare professionals contributing towards research and professional development through reinforcement of Good Clinical Practice (GCP). The PGDip is part of the Clinical Medicine programme and is only open to those who have successfully completed the PgCert in Clinical Research, Education and Leadership (formerly known as the PGCert in Clinical Medicine) at the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge. (Courses undertaken in other universities will not count as credits towards this PGDip). Students who complete their PGDip in Clinical Medicine may apply to the MSt in Clinical Medicine.
