Course Summary

This course develops expert medical educators for the doctors and healthcare professionals of tomorrow.


We support individuals with a background in medicine and other healthcare professions to be the best medical educators they can be locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Course highlights:

  • Developing the professional identity of individuals with a background in medicine, dentistry, nursing, midwifery, healthcare science, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, dietetics, and veterinary science in each of the expert roles of a teacher.
  • Creating and cultivating a community of practice of medical educators that also functions as a personal and professional learning network for each other as well as an effective alumni for future students on the course.

Our course attracts students from all over the world.


Most UK graduates go on to work in the NHS, while some international graduates work for non-governmental organisations, for their Ministry of Health, or in a range of academic careers.

Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.

This module introduces you to the principles of teaching and learning from education and psychology as applied to a medical or healthcare professions education context. You will also explore individual values and beliefs about teaching and learning and investigate the way in which the values, beliefs and held assumptions of teachers, together with expectations from learners, influence the delivery of teaching and the learning experience of students in a medical or healthcare context. The module also equips scholars to deliver theory-driven or evidence-based teaching effectively and critically reflect on the experience in order to demonstrate scholarship in their roles as teachers.
