Develop a sound theoretical and practical basis for good clinical teaching practice and educational research.

Our intercalated BSc in Medical Education gives current medical students the opportunity to achieve an additional degree in this specialist field.

You’ll gain skills in education which you’ll later apply with patients and colleagues in your practice. You’ll develop practical teaching skills and gain a solid understanding of educational theory: how memory works, how groups learn, what factors affect success, how professionalism develops, and how to assess knowledge and skills.

As well as turning you into a confident teacher, the programme will prepare you to design and run modules and assessments, and to understand mechanisms of quality assurance.

You’ll undertake a year-long module in research methods which includes attendance at the Researching Medical Education conference. A supervised individual research project puts into practice what you’ve learnt.

All students submit poster abstracts to the Association for Medical Education in Europe summer conference, with around two-thirds of these accepted each year.
