Course content

This is a course designed to meet the needs of medical educators. It will enable you to meet the new General Medical Council (GMC) standards for trainers and be accredited by Health Education North West as clinical or educational supervisors.

The programme is suitable for consultants, higher speciality trainees and non-consultant career-grade doctors working within the Health Education North West region.

What will I study?

You will study three modules, the first two of which will provide you with an introduction to medical education in the clinical workplace and offer an in-depth exploration of educational supervision in the medical workplace.

For the third module, you will choose a specific theme from options including educational leadership, simulation, technology enhanced learning, management, teaching and learning, and mentoring and coaching.

How will I study?

The programme primarily comprises substantial studying online via the University’s Virtual Learning Environment where you will find an array of specially-created learning materials to support each module and also a discussion board for active debate within each Learning Set. You will also have access to a vast range of electronic resources, including e-books and electronic journals, which can be accessed online.

The course also requires attendance at one full induction day in addition to a small number of half-day workshops for each module.

How will I be assessed?

There are no exams on this programme. Instead, a variety of coursework assignments will be used, including reflective case studies on actual practice, peer observation of teaching, and short seminar presentations.

Who will be teaching me?

The course team consists of a mixture of academic staff and experienced medical educators from clinical practice. You can expect to have contact with both academic tutors and experienced clinicians throughout the course. The course team is highly experienced in designing and delivering postgraduate online learning for medical educators.

What are my career prospects?

Successful completion of this programme will enable you to critically analyse and explore the role of teaching and learning in the clinical context and make critical judgments within the medical workplace.

You will enhance your skills in teaching, assessment, appraisal, supervision and reflective practice, with the opportunity to review your own professional needs and to plan and undertake relevant and appropriate activities to meet those identified needs.
