About

Designed by the Royal College of Physicians and University College London (UCL) to meet the requirements of doctors who are intending to have a significant role in medical education, these programmes are taken sequentially starting with the Postgraduate Certificate in year one, the Postgraduate Diploma in year two, and finally the Medical Education Master's in year three.

Overview

Participants in this Medical Education programme from University College London (UCL) develop the ability to: adopt a learner-centred teaching approach, structure teaching, and set objectives that enhance their students' learning; apply educational theory and research to their own teaching practice; recognise how assessment theory should inform practice in assessment of medical competence; and appraise both medical trainees and peers.

Teaching and learning

The programmes are part-time, requiring onsite attendance only during the contact days of teaching sessions and tutorials, which include workshop style discussion and practical application 'simulation' sessions. Assessment is through evaluative reports, investigative study proposal and report, a viva during the final stage and the dissertation.

UCL regulations require attendance for 70% or more of the module's face-to-face teaching before a student is eligible to submit the assessment for that module.
