Evidence and Values in Clinical Education

This is a 5-day taught module followed by an assignment and is available as a stand-alone PGA or as a module within the MSC medical education; this module aims to equip students with a critical understanding of the complex interrelationships between evidence and values which underpin the practice and development of clinical education; this module is taken after the modules which make up the postgraduate certificate (essentials of clinical education, assessment and evaluation, becoming an effective teacher); with this module, the emphasis of the MMedEd course shifts from preparation for effective professional practice to development of a deeper critical understanding of the underpinning research, theory and values.
