Medical Education PGCert

Course Description

This course offers a clinically-oriented and theoretical framework in which to enhance teaching practice. It creates scope for the development of individual interests for those teaching or proposing to teach medical students and doctors.

Integrated within the university's health and social science graduate programme, the course provides valuable cross-disciplinary experience through common modules shared with other courses in the scheme.

Course structure

The double core module requires the addition of one option from the list shown to complete the PGCert.

Individual modules may be studied independently for continuing professional development.

The double core module is also recognised as a route to becoming a GP trainer. Two additional days of teaching with KSS Deanery faculty are required to become eligible to be a GP trainer.

Areas of study

The core module covers theories of student learning and encourages critical analysis of learning, teaching and assessment methods in a medical context.
