About

The PGDip in Medical Education programme from Cardiff University will appeal to those wishing to explore the issues fundamental to effective health professions education in a dynamic, stimulating and supportive setting.

Overview

The PGDip in Medical Education programme from Cardiff University is committed to promoting excellence in learning and teaching for health professionals. It is for all medical, dental and other health professionals who aim to professionalise the role of the clinician as teacher.

This one year, full-time course, leads to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Education.

This course recognises the diverse, complex and challenging contexts of both those new to educator roles and responsibilities and those with considerable years of experience. The overall aim of the course is to develop a community of educators committed to promote improvements in both ‘what’ and ‘how’ we teach future healthcare professionals.

The course is highly practical and aims to model best practice in learning and teaching and draws upon a wide range of innovative approaches to learner support and development.  A comprehensive series of face-to-face modules will enable you to contribute to critical dialogues that promote deeper insights into educational theory and principles applied to clinical practice.  This allows ample time to reflect on your own practice and to share experience and new insights with colleagues.

Career prospects

Health professionals have joined the course from around the world. Many graduates use the insights gained on the course to introduce innovations to their day to day teaching, whilst others go on to higher level roles and responsibilities to lead and promote excellence in learning and teaching at national and international levels.
