Course summary

Course description

Our course allows you to study the training and development of healthcare professionals, develop your practical skills and understand the evidence underpinning contemporary practice in clinical education.

As well as taught modules, you will complete a dissertation, allowing you to apply your new knowledge and skills in clinical education to a topic that really interests you.

The modules are based around three themes, covering the range of contemporary clinical education:

  • Clinical Education in Practice
  • Educational Leadership and Scholarship
  • Educational Discovery

As well as studying for a postgraduate qualification, you will be able to seek recognition by Advance HE as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

You will have the opportunity to study alongside qualified clinicians from different clinical backgrounds and career stages, and will study as part of a supportive, diverse multi-disciplinary group, supported by leading educational researchers and practitioners.

This postgraduate qualification can also be taken by students studying for an undergraduate medical degree as an intercalated MSc (iMSc).

Students can also exit with Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate awards.

Teaching and learning

Formal teaching will take place in small groups with discussion, sharing ideas and giving/getting feedback from tutors and colleagues. This is supplemented by preparatory self-directed learning and follow-up study to develop your interests further.

Assessment methods are carefully chosen to help you demonstrate your practical and academic skills through assessed teaching. practical tasks, written assessments and oral presentations.
