We deliver a wide-ranging programme aimed at those new to teaching and training, as well as those who wish to advance their skills and knowledge in medical education.

Over a thousand students are currently studying with us, and we have many thousands of graduates worldwide. When you join us, you will become part of an international community of learners and practitioners.

Set up by Professor Ronald Harden, the Centre for Medical Education has been enabling medical educators to reach their goals and train healthcare professionals of the future for over 40 years.
