Develop your healthcare teaching with one of the UK’s leading universities
Healthcare professionals (HCPs) participate in work-based learning at all stages of their career, whether during training placements, on the job, or when undertaking CPD.
Although teaching is secondary to healthcare delivery, it remains an essential activity for sharing vital knowledge and skills amongst health professionals. However, many HCPs teaching students, trainees, or colleagues have had very little formal teaching training.
According to the General Medical Council, all doctors have a professional obligation to contribute to the education and training of other healthcare professionals.
On this Teaching Healthcare Professionals Microcredential at University of Glasgow by FutureLearn, you’ll enhance your skills in learner-centred healthcare teaching and build your confidence in teaching for a healthcare environment.
