The MA in Clinical Education offers a supportive and challenging learning environment in which clinical educators can critically review and develop both theoretical perspectives and practical skills in the facilitation of learning and assessment. You will systematically and creatively analyse the complexities of clinical education, based on active and reflective learning from your own experiences in practice.

The programme will be run on a multi-professional basis, allowing practitioners such as medical doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals to share their knowledge, experience and skills in teaching and supporting learning and the assessment or evaluation of teaching. You will improve your teaching skills and develop a critical understanding of how individuals learn in a clinical environment.

What will I study?

To exit the programme with a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Education (60 level 7 credits), you need to complete a core module in Research and Clinical Education (20 credits) then two further 20 credit modules from a choice of optional modules.

The optional modules are designed to allow you to explore different aspects of clinical education which are relevant to your role.

For the award of MA Clinical Education, you will need to complete the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Education and write a 60 credit (level 7) dissertation, which can include the preparation of a paper suitable for publication.

How will I study?

The course is delivered primarily using online learning through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The online learning is blended with a small number of face-to-face days. A typical module may include up to three face-to-face days, although due to the flexibility of the programme, attendance is not compulsory.

How will I be assessed?

A range of assessment strategies are employed in this programme including online tasks, critical reflection on practice, assignments, evaluative reports and portfolios. You will be expected to write approximately 4,000 words (or equivalent) for each module. The dissertation will be 15,000 words (or equivalent). Assignments are submitted electronically through the VLE.

Who will be teaching me?

The academic team is comprised of highly experienced tutors from Edge Hill University. Many of the team are research active in the field of clinical education and are University Teaching and Learning Fellows with an extensive publication record. Some of the academic tutors are, or have been, practising clinicians who have specialised in clinical education and others are experienced educationalists from a range of backgrounds.

What are my career prospects?

The MA Clinical Education programme will provide specialist knowledge that would be useful for any career that involves the support of learning and assessment in practice. In addition, the programme will enable you to develop skills of critical analysis and research commensurate with postgraduate study.

This course is flexible in that it offers several entry routes, choices for modular study and appropriate academic targets. Read more
This course is flexible in that it offers several entry routes, choices for modular study and appropriate academic targets. Those who have already completed either the BSMS Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education (or equivalent, if APL requested) or the BSMS Postgraduate Certificate in Simulation Studies, may enter at Postgraduate Diploma Level. These participants would then successfully complete a further three 20-credit optional modules to achieve a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Education (120 M level credits). Normally these modules would be completed part-time within one academic year.

Participants wishing to progress to Masters level must include Module MDM 10 ‘Research Methods & Critical Appraisal’ in their choice of three. A 16000-word Dissertation (as well as a 3000-word draft paper for publication) in the academic field of clinical education completes the Master of Science degree (180 M level credits). This would normally be completed in a further year, but some students with busy NHS jobs find it can take up to two years to complete.

For those who have not yet taken any ‘M Level’ postgraduate study in this area, the normal route would be to take at least two of the the ‘PG Cert Med Ed’ modules in year 1 (MDM 28/140), and then proceed with the PG Diploma/Masters routes in years 2 & 3, as described above.

Key Areas of Study

The overall aim of the course is to promote knowledge of and research into learning, teaching and communication in a clinical context, together with facilitating a reflective awareness of participants’ related educational skills and their ongoing development.
-Learning, teaching and communication skills theory & practice in clinical education
-Development of the participant’s identity as a teacher and facilitator in educational settings
-Simulation in clinical education
-Feedback & debriefing in educational contexts
-Clinical educational research as an academic discipline and its importance in the praxis of teaching
-Teaching as leadership & facilitation, both face-to-face and through the use of technology enhanced and blended learning

Course Structure

The format of assessment throughout the course is varied: some modules are assessed by more traditional 3,000 word written assignments, centred on a topic relevant to the student’s own practice or in-depth analyses of specific case studies or significant educational events. Others feature the development of specific educational tools (e.g. on–line learning or simulation-based assessment), focussing on more practical aspects of clinical education. Students will also develop a personal educational portfolio of about 5,000 words using an appropriate national professional standards framework i.e. Health Education Academy (HEA) or Academy of Medical Educators (AoME).The Dissertation module involves a personal research project and is assessed by a 16,000 word thesis plus a draft paper for submission for publication in an appropriate academic journal.

Medical and Clinical Education (MaCE) was developed in response to requests from local GPs, nurses and allied health professionals. The desire of these practitioners to develop their teaching and assessing skills, and to pursue an accredited programme, reflects the increasing recognition of the value of work-based learning in professional education.

The programme provides you with a systematic and critical understanding of the key concepts underlying learning, teaching and assessing in the medical and clinical practice environment. It enables health care professionals to acquire advanced skills in teaching and assessing students in a medical and clinical practice context.

This is a modularised pathway and you can choose to study part-time between two and five years. Teaching contributions are drawn from expertise across the University’s academic departments and many modules are supported by Moodle, our online learning environment.

This course will:
-Enable you to apply your understanding of educational, legal and ethical frameworks and healthcare policy to enable others to learn and enhance their own professional practice, thereby being a positive role model for your students
-Help you engage in quality enhancement and improve students’ learning experiences.
-Ensure you acquire a range of transferable employment-related skills, most importantly, independent learning skills for continuing professional development
-Create flexible, inter-professional learning pathways to develop educators for the clinical professions

Professional, statutory and regulatory bodies

We are committed to embedding the NHS Constitution Values (which are strongly reflected in our University values) into everything we do. They define the behaviours and expectations of all our staff and students underpinning the work we do in the university, clinical arena and other workplaces.

We understand that not all of our students and staff are employed within the NHS but these values uphold the underlying principles of excellent care as a standard, and as such we expect that anyone who cares for others will aspire to uphold these values.

For us, involving not only our students, but service users, experts by experience, carers and NHS/non NHS professionals in the creation and delivery of all programmes is vital.

This course can also be taken as a PGDip or PGCert - please view the relevant web-page for more information:
