Course Summary

The Research Department for Medical Education (RDME) is the research arm of UCL Medical School. Drawing together experienced doctors, nurses, psychologists and educationalists, we ensure that the work of the medical school is based on strong pedagogical research foundations. Medical School has a significant and vigorous educational research profile. Academics and research staff from a variety of backgrounds (education, social science, psychology, philosophy and medical ethics, as well as clinical specialties) contribute to our cross-disciplinary and wide-ranging educational research activities. Educational research is fundamental to improving medical and health-related professional practice, from medical school to postgraduate training, and continuing professional development. At UCL Medical School, our undergraduate and postgraduate teaching is informed by our research, and our research is informed by our teaching. We are also dedicated to contributing to the wider education community by sharing our research findings and involving key stakeholders in our educational research. Our research outputs and reputation are growing in both national and international importance, particularly in the key area of assessment. Many former students and clinical practitioners have continued to practise in healthcare whilst playing a significant role in local education.
