With a flexible and broad selection of options, from single courses through to Masters of Science degrees, we offer students the unique opportunity to have direct contact with international students, lecturers, tutors and experts in pain management from across the world, widening students’ understanding of pain in a variety of clinical contexts.
How will I learn?
Each course in the Clinical Management of Pain (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh consists of themed areas including a blend of:
- short online lectures
- practical case studies
- directed readings
- interdisciplinary e-lectures
The interaction between students, clinicians and academics is promoted through facilitated discussion forums, providing the opportunity for collaborative critical discourse and debate of current issues.
Assessments and course tasks are designed to provide students with authentic learning opportunities, and offer the ability to draw on students’ clinical experiences and expertise, regardless of where in the world students are located.
The programme will enhance your understanding and clinical knowledge of pain management, improve your academic capabilities and provide opportunities to develop your career. There are many diverse prospects for employment depending on where graduates want to work, the area of the world where they are currently based, and, previous experience and interest.
You can, however, be assured that as a graduate of the programme, your professional and career development will be enhanced in the following areas:
- advanced clinical practice
- clinical leadership
- training and education
