Course overview - Will you inspire and train the medics and healthcare professionals of the future? Our MSc in Medical Education introduces the principles of teaching, learning and assessing others. Modules can be studied through blended learning (some face to face sessions and synchronous online teaching) or wholly distance learning (self-directed with tutorial support).

  • This programme is also available to study as an online distance learning course, giving you a flexible route to study your degree.

  • Designed for doctors and other healthcare professionals who are responsible for teaching, assessing and supporting students and trainees, both in educational institutions and in the workplace, the course will enhance your confidence and skills in medical education. 

  • It offers a mix of theoretical and practical skills that build from basic to advanced levels. The emphasis will be on effective evidence-based education for practitioners who are committed to the provision of high-quality learning opportunities for their students, colleagues and patients. It focuses on developing competent, reflective, yet critical practitioners who, through study, practice and research, can contribute effectively to medical education.

  • You’ll study with peers from the healthcare sector who also have an educational role, exploring ways of developing and delivering effective medical education, addressing challenges and investigating different approaches. 

Why study with us - Much of the course content is delivered via the University’s eLearn system, which means you can prepare work ahead of the on-campus study and undertake additional work independently from home.

  • Our programme equips healthcare professionals with an educational role with the knowledge and skills to build on their current experiences and enables explicit use of these experiences within module assessments.

  • You’ll learn what’s needed to facilitate effective learning within and outside of the workplace. And you’ll be able to select and apply best practice principles to teaching, assessing, supporting learning and giving feedback to others.
