About

The Medical and Clinical Education course offered by the University of Essex was developed in response to requests from local GPs, nurses and allied health professionals. The desire of these practitioners to develop their teaching and assessing skills, and to pursue an accredited programme, reflects the increasing recognition of the value of work-based learning in professional education.

Overview

The Medical and Clinical Education course offered by the University of Essex  provides you with a systematic and critical understanding of the key concepts underlying learning, teaching and assessing in the medical and clinical practice environment. It enables health care professionals to acquire advanced skills in teaching and assessing students in a medical and clinical practice context.

This is a modularised pathway and you can choose to study part-time between two and five years. Teaching contributions are drawn from expertise across the University’s academic departments and many modules are supported by Moodle, our online learning environment.

This course will:

  • Enable you to apply your understanding of educational, legal and ethical frameworks and healthcare policy to enable others to learn and enhance their own professional practice, thereby being a positive role model for your students
  • Help you engage in quality enhancement and improve students’ learning experiences.
  • Ensure you acquire a range of transferable employment-related skills, most importantly, independent learning skills for continuing professional development
  • Create flexible, inter-professional learning pathways to develop educators for the clinical professions
