On completion of the course you will have a deeper understanding of the design, delivery, assessment and evaluation of learning and teaching in clinical settings and higher education.

The course draws on expertise from the Faculty of Health, the Postgraduate Medical and Dental Deanery and practitioners from Hospital and Primary Care Trusts.
