Our online Clinical Education programme takes advantage of our world-renowned expertise to enhance your abilities to teach and assess students in a clinical environment.
This is an ideal programme for those responsible for tutoring health care professionals and veterinary practitioners, including doctors, nurses, dental practitioners and those involved with veterinary education.
Our aim is to help you reflect upon, and share thoughts about, your practice, while increasing your understanding of how to apply educational theories and evidence from the literature. As a result you will learn the knowledge and skills you need to deliver, develop and research high-quality clinical education in your own discipline.
This programme is affiliated with the University's Global Health Academy.
There are three courses at the certificate stage and three at the diploma stage. This is followed by your thesis in the third year.
We deliver lectures and tutorials online and you will be expected to use self-directed learning, peer-discussion boards, tutorials, peer presentations and other similar e-learning activities to help engage with and get the most from the course materials.
