The PGCert in Teaching Evidence-Based Health Care programme offered at the University of Oxford aims to foster and develop future leaders in teaching evidence-based health care by exploring different teaching styles, identifying development needs and through planning effective curriculum.


The Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching Evidence-Based Health Care will help you to:

  • provide education and training in teaching evidence-based health care in undergraduate and postgraduate settings;
  • use theories and research evidence to inform your own teaching practice in health care and educational settings;
  • demonstrate the ability to teach aspects of research methods, critical appraisal and biostatistics effectively and with confidence;
  • plan effective curriculum design and evaluation in evidence-based health care; and
  • identify different teaching styles and theories and the challenges underpinning the evidence-base of teaching.

The course offered at the University of Oxford provides flexible training and experiential learning over 12 to 24 months with three modules, each consisting of five consecutive days of face-to-face teaching in Oxford with following weeks of study support through a virtual learning environment. The order in which the modules are to be taken will not be prescribed, allowing the maximum flexibility for participants to combine study with their professional commitments. Guidance may be given as to a preferred order. Participants have access to current leaders in research-led teaching and experts in medical education.

Programme Structure

  • Each module will consist of a balance between the outlined strategies, in order to meet the course aims and learning outcomes. During the weeks in Oxford, there will be a balanced mix of lectures, small group work and practice sessions. 
  • This is to ensure grounding in the core ideas and principles of teaching EBHC, and to begin the acquisition of skills in reflective practice.
  •  Learning during the post-Oxford periods consists of on-line peer-to-peer learning, workplace-based activities and guided learning, with tutorial feedback, in order to develop and reinforce skills in providing and enacting reflective practice through experiential learning.
