Medical and Healthcare Education

This course gives students a good grounding in methods of learning and teaching specifically in the healthcare context. Teaching includes large group discussions, seminars, group work, work-based discussions and e-learning. By the time students graduate, their independent thinking and practice and their advanced knowledge base allows them to be well placed to act as a role model, educator and mentor in an inter-professional context. Our course is also designed to make sure students fully recognise the significance of the values and principles of care promoted by the NHS Constitution (Department of Health, 2010). Students are able to engage in reflective activity in the workplace as well as attend formal teaching lectures, seminars and workshops. As our course is open to people from a wide range of healthcare environments, students are likely to find themselves studying alongside doctors, consultants, nurses, dentists, midwives and allied health professionals, enriching your student experience. Inter-professional learning is key to the development of this course and many of our lecturers are also professionals in the healthcare field.
