University of Edinburgh
A Masters degree in a relevant field (e.g. clinical, medical or health professions education). A primary clinical qualification, such as an MBChB, BVS, BDS, Bachelor of Nursing or other degree. Applications from those with biomedical or social science qualifications, or non-university professional qualifications such as RGN with appropriate clinical experience, will be considered on an individual basis. Applicants must have experience of clinical, medical, allied healthcare or veterinary education - for example teaching undergraduate or postgraduate students. If English is the 1st language, one of the following qualifications as evidence of spoken and written English: IELTS minimum score: IELTS Academic module: 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each section). Other accepted tests and scores: TOEFL-iBT: 92 (with at least 20 in all sections); PTE: 61 (with no score lower than 56 in each of the 'Communicative Skills' sections - 'Enabling Skills' section scores are not considered); CPE: Grade B; CAE: Grade A.
Some of the current research focuses on: faculty development; assessment and feedback in medical education; psychometrics; learning outcome development and mapping; students learning to teach and Peer Assisted Learning (PAL); preparation for practice; international medical education; clinical skills. Doctoral students receive direct support from at least 2 academic supervisors during their studies, and a dedicated thesis committee provides guidance throughout the programme of research. Research training is tailored to each doctoral student, but typically includes material from the well-established MSc 'Research in Clinical Education' and 'Dissertation' courses, an extensive programme of university PhD training workshops and meetings, and fortnightly 'Medical Education Forum' and 'CME Research Meeting' events for presentation of completed research and work-in-progress.
