Online Health Professions Education PG Dip

To keep pace with technology, personalised care and ever-shifting policies and budgets, today’s health professionals are on a journey of lifelong learning. Our course is run by one of the largest, most prestigious medical schools in Europe - the School of Medicine, Dentistry & Nursing. Studying here will mean that you’re on the pulse of contemporary medical thinking and high-quality research.

Bring fresh thinking to health education

Designed for those who identify themselves as practitioners and would like to apply educational theory and an evidence base to their specific health professions. You will be directly involved in shaping medical perspectives and driving the health industry forwards. Ranked 1st for Medicine (The Complete University Guide 2021), the Health Professions Education MSc will be taught with a focus on practical, active and applicable learning.

Choose your own path

Our 100% online programme encourages you to debate principles behind learning and teaching and the nature of knowledge and evidence, evaluate and apply appropriate theories, practices, assessment strategies and curriculum models, whilst also appraising the impact of technology-enhanced learning and teaching on education.

You will also gain the flexibility to take one of two research routes in the second year, tailored to your career goals (including a non-research option). The research programme is appropriate for those who are interested in learning about the design, conduct and governance of education research. Both channels provide plenty of opportunities to put theory into practice, alongside your peers and lecturers. It’s this collaborative, practical approach that enhances your learning and allows you to excel in the industry going forwards.

100% online, interactive learning

Studying online means you don’t have to sacrifice your current career in order to pursue a new one. You would be able to access our interactive resources from anywhere and at any time; this includes video, audio, live seminars and discussions – whatever helps you to learn and achieve your career goals. At the University of Glasgow you can further your ambitions without compromising your current commitments.
