The Teaching and Learning for Health Professionals programme at University of Bristol emphasises practical application of educational methods and theory and the development of reflective, evidence-based practice.

There is a positive, student-centred approach to teaching and learning. Interactive, small-group teaching and the flexible, friendly support received by learners are among the many strengths of the programme, as well as the networking and contacts enjoyed by students in their future careers.

The 60-credit certificate can be completed in one or two years part-time. Following completion of the certificate, the 60-credit diploma can be achieved over one or two years part-time. On completion of 120 credits, progression to the 60-credit MSc dissertation is allowed. Alternatively, all 180 credits can be attained through studying full-time for one year.


A qualification in medical education will prepare you for roles supporting students in the health professions or those in training grades.

Many educators in the health professions have had a clinical career or continue to balance a clinical and academic/teaching career as clinical academics. Others are practitioners who use their qualification to enhance their personal practice as educators, or to take leading roles in education and training in postgraduate and undergraduate settings.
