Health Professions Education/Health Professions Education (with Research)

This programme is designed for those who primarily identify themselves as practitioners and who want to apply educational theory and an evidence base to their specific health professions education context.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally possess a medical, dental, or nursing degree from an institution recognised by the University Court; or a recognised degree from another appropriate health profession. Applications will also be considered from individuals with other relevant degree qualifications (such as a BSc in a biomedical science), who are, or aspire to be, employed in the education of health professionals. Applicants should ideally work in a health professions environment, and for applicants to the MSc HPE (with Research), they must have access to a health professions environment where, subject to ethical approval, they may conduct empirical research.

Course modules

The programme is made up of the following courses: principles of health-professions education; evidence, policy and governance; dissertation (10,000-15,000 words); thesis (50,000 words).
