Medical education is at the core of healthcare provision globally. Ensuring the future workforce is prepared to meet the challenges of modern healthcare means we need medical education experts to help shape practice.
At the Centre for Medical Education - founded over 40 years ago by Professor Ronald Harden OBE - we help medical educators to reach their goals, and prepare to train the workforce of the future.
Our wide-ranging curriculum fits around you and your working life, whether you're new to teaching and training, or wish to advance existing skills and knowledge.
You'll start with two core modules - Teaching & Learning in Medical Education and Principles of Assessment in Medical Education. These will give you an overview of the core concepts of medical education, and are the perfect foundation to build your knowledge on.
You'll then choose a range of optional modules to gain a qualification that fits you and your goals. If you complete a PGCert, you'll undertake the two core and one optional module, the PGDip is six modules in total (including the two core), and the Masters course adds a dissertation on to the PGDip format. However far you take your qualification with us, you'll be supported and cohorted with likeminded professionals who can share insight into their professional practice.
We also offer specialist PGCerts for those teaching in anaesthetics, dentistry, general practice, oncology, radiology, simulation (requiring a short face-to-face component), and surgery.
