Course content

Though their roles in undergraduate and postgraduate training, medical educators play a significant role in the development and quality of health care.

The MSc in Medical Education aims to serve as a vehicle through which students can pursue a ‘journey’ during which they can develop, explore and enhance their medical teaching through acquisition of a range of skills and application of knowledge

Medical education has a focus which is different to higher education teaching. This focus is built around patient care and is present not only in learning and teaching but also in assessment and feedback and in developing and delivering educational programmes to multidisciplinary teams and in a variety of contexts.

This postgraduate course teaches a number of interconnecting modules, starting with teaching methods, assessment and appraisal and in the second year broadens to consider developing learning in health care, professionalism and education research methods. Students will have the opportunity to study alongside educationalists from a variety of professional backgrounds. In the final year the student completes a final year triple module which is the Master's dissertation.

We feel that this is required for each of our courses as our students come here because of the facilities and the specialists that provide the courses so it is important that prospective students are able to see the full details of the school when they search for a course.
