Medical Education MA/PgDip/PgCert

The MA in Medical Education is run by the University of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Medical School.  This highly regarded course is designed for individuals with education and training roles in medical and healthcare settings.  Current students include educational and clinical supervisors, aspiring GP Trainers, clinical academics, practice educators from medical, veterinary, nursing, midwifery, allied health and osteopathy backgrounds.  Sensitive to the competing demands of busy professionals, the programme combines core study days in the beautiful surroundings of Putteridge Bury, with interactive and supported on-line learning. 

What does it involve?

The assessment strategy is designed to help you advance educator and educational leadership skills and capabilities with direct ‘workplace’ relevance.  The programme is delivered by a highly experienced course team, led by Clare Morris, with established track records in medical and healthcare education training.  

The programme has a strong practice based approach, designed to address the development needs of those new to medical education and training and those with considerable experience.  It has a flexible structure, with interim awards (Pg Cert and Pg Dip) and the opportunity to engage in stand-alone modules or study days for continuing professional development purposes.

The programme has a clear emphasis on the development of medical educator and educational leadership skills and affords opportunities to explore inter-professional, inter-disciplinary and disciplinary specific aspects of education and training.

This innovative programme combines study days, workshops and master-classes with remote access on-line learning.  The Postgraduate Certificate involves nine contact days, the MA involves 20 contact days.
