Course content

Our online Clinical Education programme takes advantage of our world-renowned expertise to enhance your abilities to teach and assess students in a clinical environment.

This is an ideal programme for those with an educational role in relation to healthcare professionals and veterinary practitioners, including doctors, nurses, dental practitioners, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists, those involved with veterinary education or associated scientists (biomedical or social).

Our aim is to help you reflect upon, and share thoughts about, your practice, while increasing your understanding of how to apply educational theories and evidence from the literature. As a result you will learn the knowledge and skills you need to deliver, develop and research high-quality clinical education in your own discipline.

This programme is affiliated with NHS Education for Scotland and the University's Global Health Academy.
