This MA 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 particularly 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 MA 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.
The MA will give graduates a significant advantage in applying for leadership roles in education. For registrars, it will give them a competitive advantage when applying for positions as consultants.
Flexible study The part time format of this Masters programme, over three years, allows you to maintain the other clinical and teaching commitments that you may have.
On this course you will:
- Engage with like-minded colleagues in a deep analysis of the nature and dynamics of teaching and learning in clinical education, drawing on a wide range of educational theories; - Understand the important relationship between high quality education, effective team working and good patient care; - Gain a deep understanding of how to evaluate and improve curriculum; - Become an active researcher of clinical education in order to develop teaching and learning opportunities for students; - Develop and hone skills as a leader and innovator in clinical education in their workplace setting. - Be prepared to take up career opportunities in clinical education, including educational leadership roles in their local setting and beyond.
