Medical Sciences Health Care / Medicine Teaching / Training Education Studies
Will you inspire and train the medics and healthcare professionals of the future? Our PGCert, Dip and MSc in Medical Education introduce the principles of teaching, learning and assessing others. Modules are studied through online learning (distance learning) which includes live, online, teaching and seminar sessions, self-directed tasks and tutorial support.
Designed for doctors and other healthcare professionals who are responsible for teaching, assessing and supporting students and trainees, both in educational institutions and in the workplace, the course will enhance your confidence and skills in medical education.
It offers a mix of theoretical and practical skills that build from basic to advanced levels. The emphasis will be on effective evidence-based education for practitioners who are committed to the provision of high-quality learning opportunities for their students, colleagues and patients. It focuses on developing competent, reflective, yet critical practitioners who, through study, practice and research, can contribute effectively to medical education in their healthcare context.
Our students include practitioners from a range of healthcare disciplines e.g., medicine, dentistry, nursing and paramedicine and together, you will explore ways of developing and delivering effective medical education, addressing challenges and investigating different approaches.
Why study with us
On completion, you will be well placed to influence the role and the research of medical education in patient care at a local, regional and national level.
The PGCert offers a foundation in critical aspects of medical education: professionalism (and the teaching of it), educational theory and assessment practices. The assignments for each module are designed to enable students to reflect on their own practice and research topics in a targeted way. Therefore, you will be able to explore aspects of the subject area that are relevant to your own practice.
Within the PGDip and MSc there are opportunities to tailor your learning further, enabling an extended exploration into the topic areas relevant to your own career and practice. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
