About Medical Education (E-Learning), Postgraduate Certificate - at Cardiff University

This Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education is an e-learning course, offering build-up of study credit via a three-stage, progressive course delivered online.

This Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education enables healthcare professionals with a special interest in education to professionalise the role of clinician as teacher. 

The Postgraduate Certificate is a one-year, part-time Master’s-level programme, resulting in 60 credits at Level-7. This route is a standalone option for those who may not be in a position to commit to a MSc and three years of study. However, there is an option to use the credits within three years and complete the MSc. 

The course is highly practical and aims to model best practice in learning and teaching, drawing upon a wide range of innovative approaches to learner support and development. For those of you who would like to obtain the HEA Fellowship award, there is an opportunity to opt into this pathway. Further information will be provided when you start the programme.

This programme is for all medical, dental, veterinary and other healthcare professionals who want to expand their understanding of pedagogy and be able to apply educational theory to clinical education to provide high satisfaction in those they teach. The programme will support you to assess and reflect on your own practice and identify where current gaps lie in the delivery of clinical education. You will be given the opportunity to develop innovative educational solutions to address unmet clinical learning needs that will improve outcomes.

By developing a network of experienced clinical teachers our programme aims to encourage a culture for training of healthcare professionals and demonstrate alignment of teaching and learning practice with UK Professional Standards and professional values (AdvanceHE, GMC, Academy of Medical Educators).

The course is accredited by the Academy of Medical Educators (AoME), allowing you to apply for fast-track membership.

An optional 'Fellowship Pathway' is accredited by Advance HE and is available alongside year 1 study enabling you to seek Fellowship (FHEA). A final portfolio should be submitted at the end of the academic year.
