This programme has been developed jointly Lancaster Medical School and the Centre for Education, Training and Development (CETAD) – both are divisions within the Faculty of Health and Medicine. It is designed to meet the GMC's strategy that all those involved in the development and education of doctors should be competent in the principles and practices of medical education.
Whether you directly teach undergraduate student doctors or supervise specialist trainees, this programme will help you to:
- develop and consolidate your knowledge and understanding of core principles of medical education
- enhance your skills as a medical educator
- evidence your competence in line with the Academy of Medical Educator’s learning domains
Progressing from a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) in Medical Education to the Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits) will enable you to develop further in the specialist aspects of medical education pertinent to your own role and work context through a range of optional modules and the completion of work based applied medical education projects.
If you wish to progress with your studies by completing a work-based medical education project you will have the opportunity to gain an MSc in Medical Education.
