Course summary

Medical education is at the core of healthcare provision the world over. Ensuring the future workforce is prepared to meet the challenges of modern healthcare means we need experts in medical education to help shape practice.

At the Centre for Medical Education, founded over 40 years ago by world-renowned Professor Ronald Harden OBE, we help medical educators reach their goals, and ensure they're prepared to train the workforce of the future.

Our wide-ranging curriculum fits around you and your working life, whether you're new to teaching and training, or wish to advance existing skills and knowledge. We offer three qualifications – a Masters in Medical Education (MMEd), a Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) and a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert), so you can choose which level you want to complete.

Whatever level you decide to study to, you'll start with two core modules which will give you a strong overview of the core concepts of medical education and are the perfect foundation to build your knowledge on.

You'll then choose from a range of optional modules to gain a qualification that fits you and your goals. For the masters course, you will also complete a dissertation on a topic relevant to your needs and interests.

We also offer specialist part time distance learning PGCerts for those teaching in anaesthetics, dentistry, general practice, oncology, radiology, simulation, and surgery.

Careers

This course will prepare you to take on new challenges and responsibilities in your career. You'll gain a strong understanding of the underlying principles of medical education, and how the field is changing to react to the demands of modern healthcare teaching.

You'll develop the knowledge and skills to deliver the medical curriculum more effectively, and also be fully equipped to design and evaluate medical training at all levels, ensuring effective development of those you are training.
