The Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Evidence-Based Health Care will help you to.

  • provide education and training in teaching evidence-based health care in undergraduate and postgraduate settings;
  • use theories and research evidence to inform your own teaching practice in health care and educational settings;
  • demonstrate the ability to teach aspects of research methods, critical appraisal and biostatistics effectively and with confidence;
  • plan effective curriculum design and evaluation in evidence-based health care; and
  • identify different teaching styles and theories and the challenges underpinning the evidence-base of teaching.

The course provides flexible training and experiential learning over 12 to 24 months with three modules, each consisting of five consecutive days of face-to-face teaching in Oxford with following weeks of study support through a virtual learning environment. The order in which the modules are to be taken will not be prescribed, allowing the maximum flexibility for participants to combine study with their professional commitments. Guidance may be given as to a preferred order. Participants have access to current leaders in research-led teaching and experts in medical education.

Assessment

There will be a formative assessment of the presentation of own teaching and leadership as appropriate at each of the face-to-face teaching weeks. The assessment for each module will be based on a written assignment of not more than 4,000 words.

Graduate destinations

It is anticipated that most who commence this course will already be health practitioners or educators and as such will already be employed within the health or education sector. The course offers opportunities for career enhancement through the development of a better understanding of the theory and practice of teaching, and the design and evaluation of curriculum in undergraduate and postgraduate contexts. There is also the opportunity to consider further MSc and DPhil study in this area.

The Higher Education Statistics Agency, who collect data on UK HE staff with a teaching qualification, considers a PG Cert in teaching to be equivalent to Fellow of the HEA (UKPSF Descriptor 2), regardless of whether the programme is accredited by the HEA or mapped to the UKPSF.
