Medical Education MSc


Course Description

The world of medical education has presented many new challenges in the last ten years, and continues to do so. Most clinicians engage in some form of teaching, whether on wards, in clinics or through other teaching opportunities with undergraduate students and/or trainees. However, few of them have had the opportunity for professional development in teaching.

This part time programme seeks to aid the development of those medical educators. It combines study days, workplace based assessments, research skills training and teaching practice. The programme has a strong emphasis upon professional practice and is designed for those who have teaching roles that bring them into contact with students. It is suitable for those doctors new to medical education and training, as well as those with experience.

Manchester is one of the leading centres in medical education and has a national and international reputation for high quality research in the field.

The programme team are experienced in education, medical and healthcare. Programme Directors are Dr Don Bradley and Dr Leena Patel.

This programme will appeal to doctors who actively contribute to undergraduate and postgraduate education and/or training. Participants enrolling on the programme include:
- Consultants from hospitals and NHS trusts
- Doctors in training in hospitals, general practices and community settings
- Doctors with leadership roles in teaching and learning
- GP trainers
