This programme provides development in teaching skills for health professionals, with a modular unit structure that builds up to a postgraduate certificate, postgraduate diploma or MSc. The programme emphasises the practical application of educational methods and theory and the development of reflective, evidence based-practice. There is a positive, student-centered approach to teaching and learning. Interactive, small-group teaching and the flexible, friendly support received by learners are among the many strengths of the programme, as well as the networking and contacts enjoyed by students in their future careers.
The certificate or diploma can be completed in one year, part-time or spread over three years.

A qualification in medical education prepares the holder for roles educating the public in the UK or abroad, and supporting students in the health professions or those in training grades. Many educators in the health professions have had a clinical career or continue to balance a clinical and academic/teaching career as clinical academics. Others are practitioners who use their qualification to enhance their personal practice as educators, or to take leading roles in education and training in postgraduate and undergraduate settings.
