Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education PG Cert

This part-time, Master's level programme is designed for healthcare professionals involved in medical education and training. There are growing expectations that those with educational roles and responsibilities should engage in professional development activity to enable them to model and uphold the highest standards.

This programme provides a sound foundation for allied health professionals who support undergraduate medical students and/or postgraduate trainees' learning in Higher and Professional Education settings, including the clinical workplace.

The programme has been designed in collaboration with clinicians and other healthcare professionals. As a result, the structure of the programme allows students flexibility over module choice, minimising the potential for service disruption and allowing students to develop areas of expertise relevant to their role responsibilities.

One of our students says: "Overall, I've been pleasantly surprised at how engaging and motivating an online course can be. I chose the course because I didn't think I'd be able to make regular fixed times for teaching but wasn't optimistic about how much I'd learn. There seems to be a really good balance between reading, activities and forum discussions. All of this is backed up by very engaged & responsive tutors which means that the course feels very much "live" despite being completed in our own time."
