University of Chester
Education for Postgraduate Medical Practice
Candidates will normally be senior clinicians who have completed their speciality training programme and who teach in the clinical setting. Those without a medical degree qualification must have a 1st degree of which the classification will normally be a 2.1 or above; candidates must be working with doctors in the clinical setting. All candidates who complete an application form and provide a supporting reference will be interviewed. To be accepted on the programme, all candidates need to agree to be observed in the clinical setting, to confirm that they can commit appropriate time to the course and its demands, and can attend at minimum 4 and a half of the 5 teaching days or equivalent for each module. Where candidates can offer equivalent study or experience from elsewhere to meet the requirements of part of the programme, this will be subjected to normal Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning/Accreditation of Prior Learning (AP(E)L/APL) regulations. Participants will normally be asked to undertake a bespoke series of several sessions and/or a written assignment, together with 2 teaching observations; this will depend on the nature of the applicant's prior experience and will be negotiated on an individual basis with the programme leader and module leaders.
Modules include: Introduction to post graduate medical education; how doctors think: teaching and assessing clinical reasoning; medical curricular on paper and in action; practice development in postgraduate medical education; language and literature for learning and teaching in clinical settings; teacher as researcher in postgraduate medical education; dissertation.
Assessment is at the end of each module and is based on a written assignment and a portfolio created during the programme.
