Course summary

About the course

This programme has been developed to prepare clinicians and health and care professionals for their role as clinical educators and assessors. It is intended to develop skills in providing education within the working environment. It provides inter-professional working opportunities for the study of key aspects of medical education. It is useful for any medical, health or social care professional with an interest in developing their education knowledge and skills. You may study individual modules to gain academic credits or complete a planned programme of study leading to a Masters (180 credits) an interim award of Postgraduate Diploma in Health and Medical Education (120 credits), or PgCert (60 credits) awards. Most modules are worth 30 postgraduate credits each. You are allowed 5 years from initial registration to complete your academic award.

Why choose this course?

This programme has been developed in response to an evolving NHS and healthcare climate where clinicians are increasingly providing education and support within the working environment. The programme will equip medical and healthcare practitioners with knowledge and skills for developing outstanding educational expertise. You will study and explore aspects of educational theory and practice with particular emphasis on adult, clinical and work based learning. There is also an option to study simulation as an educational tool in our very well equipped clinical simulation centre - one of the largest in Europe. This programme provides the opportunity to experience a range of teaching and learning techniques, such as blended learning and psychomotor skills training, and the teaching approaches of a range of very experienced clinical educators. This programme leads to the award of MSc Health and Medical Education with interim awards of Postgraduate Diploma Health and Medical Education or Postgraduate Certificate Health and Medical Education.

What will I study?

A variety of teaching methods are used during the programme including seminars, group work, e-learning, and work-based learning. The programme is well supported by expert educationalists; academics with expertise in work based and health based education; doctors and nurses with expertise in competency assessment; and key opinion leaders in the field so that it maintains links with practice and the ability to reflect current trends in educational practice and work based learning. The course is intensive with a limited amount of classroom based teaching, and requires you to be a self-directed learner and make full use of the e-support provided and of the Virtual Learning Environment - StudyNet. Our state-of-the-art Learning Resources Centres are open 24/7 to meet your information, computing, study and coursework needs. We receive excellent ratings from current students for our facilities and our virtual learning environment, Studynet.

Careers

This postgraduate programme offers the opportunity for clinicians working in positions where teaching and training is a requirement, to update and enhance their knowledge and skills. This is identified in the Gold Guide (DoH 1997), which specifies that those involved in the provision and management of postgraduate medical training programmes must have required competencies in the range of educational issues covered by the programme.
