The philosophy of the Medical Education programme at The University of Winchester is grounded in a view of professional development through research-based activity. In each module, you are supported to engage with the theories which guide your educational practice in the situations you encounter in your role, and to test and develop these theories through research and reflection. 

About

The teaching and learning approach of the course is founded on the principle that learning is an active, experiential and collaborative process.

The overarching aim of the educational research you will undertake is to provide you with insight into your educational practice, sustained by evidence. The outcome of this research can infl uence the quality of your practice as an educator for the benefi t of learners, other educators and the wider educational community. This approach to study provides a solid theoretical and practical foundation that can be applied to your own teaching context.

The Medical Education programme at The University of Winchester is suitable for educators working across all areas of clinical and healthcare education including, for example, clinical tutors, educational supervisors, doctors, nurses, dentists, and those wishing to develop a special interest in education or who are managing education programmes.

When you complete the course, we hope you will not only see your educational practice in new ways, with greater insight, but also share your learning in your own educational contexts to inspire and lead.

Careers

Medical education is regarded as a sub-speciality in its own right; increasingly educators require additional professional qualifications. This programme develops and extends the educational practice of its students and can form the basis of a research degree or further training, including progress to EdD within the University.
