PGD in Medical Education (1-year)

Program Structure

The PGD (1 year) Medical Education course is designed for medical and health professionals who come into contact with medical students in their roles, and want to further develop their teaching skills through a course with a strong emphasis on professional practice. Most clinicians engage in some form of teaching, whether this is onwards, in clinics/hospitals or through other teaching opportunities with undergraduate students and/or trainees. However, few have had the opportunity for professional development in teaching. The PGD Medical Education is beneficial for those clinicians who are new to medical education and training.
