Who is this programme for?
Our Health Professions Education programmes are designed for professionals from all health backgrounds who are interested in teaching, assessment, course design and educational research.
The programme will equip you with the skills and knowledge to deliver exceptional teaching and learning, and undertake rigorous research – so you can inspire and lead in your area of practice and ultimately improve health outcomes.
We have current and past students from disciplines and specialities including (but not limited to): medicine, dentistry, nursing, general practice, midwifery, radiography, physiotherapy, operating department practitioners, dietetics, physician associates, speech and language therapists and pharmacy as well as other health profession related roles including ward and GP practice managers, technicians, teaching fellows, academics and researchers.
Healthcare professionals and intercalating medicine students who wish to study at a distance or with a mix of onsite face-to-face contact will find our distance and blended programmes ideal. These programmes mean that you can work and study at any time of day and thus have maximum flexibility. We have students from across the UK and worldwide including Australia, Abu Dhabi, Japan and Europe.
