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.
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.
