Medical Education

The course covers teaching and supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students as increased recruitment to the NHS produces even greater demands for teachers. There is a need for greater professionalism and accountability as clinical teachers and this course is designed to meet this need by providing a sound theoretical and practical basis for good teaching practice.

Entry requirements

The programme is designed for graduate (or equivalent) health professionals preparing for, or currently engaged in, clinical teaching. Entry routes will be flexible and designed to recognise appropriate prior experience and introductory courses.

Course modules

Year 1 modules: introduction to medical education; teaching methods and theories of learning; assessment in medical education; curriculum design and session planning. Year 2 modules (4 from): developing professional skills and attitudes; introduction to e-teaching; introduction to research in medical education; problem-based learning; independent study module; media design.

Assessment methods

Module 1 of the Certificate will be assessed by a portfolio of evidence, relating to prior experience, taught courses, reflection and observation of teaching. Remaining modules will be assessed by assignments, generally in written format, and with a choice of subject areas, along with specific project work associated with some modules.
