Education for Clinical Contexts PG Cert

Study Details

PGCert 1 year Part-time

The Postgraduate Certificate in Education for Clinical Contexts has been specifically designed for doctors, dentists, senior nurses, allied health professionals and academics, involved in undergraduate or postgraduate teaching of clinicians.

It aims to attract committed educators working in and around clinical contexts, who seek to both improve teaching and learning and to understand more fully the educational potential of their working environment, i.e. the sort of person who asks these types of questions:-

  • Might there be better ways to motivate and engage learners in clinical education?
  • Do the clinical education programmes I am involved achieve all they could?
  • How might I improve my own practice as an educator, as well as the practice of my colleagues and/or teams?

If these questions resonate with you, then this PG Cert in Education for Clinical Contexts programme will be of particular appeal. Through this programme you will have opportunity to research and improve your teaching practice, as well as developing expertise to lead clinical education programmes in your workplace context.

Module details

There are three modules, all of which are compulsory:

  • Teaching and learning for clinical contexts (30 credits)
  • Innovative practices and theories in clinical education (15 credits)
  • Clinical curriculum evaluation and development (15 credits)

If you decide you would like to continue beyond a PG Cert qualification, you can talk to the programme leaders about enrolling in the MA Education for Clinical Contexts programme (which is another two years part-time study, following completion of the PG Cert in Education for Clinical Contexts)
