University of Leicester

Our course allows you to study the training and development of healthcare professionals, develop your practical skills and understand the evidence underpinning contemporary practice in clinical education.

As well as taught modules, you will complete a dissertation, allowing you to apply your new knowledge and skills in clinical education to a topic that really interests you.

The modules are based around three themes, covering the range of contemporary clinical education:

Clinical Education in Practice
Educational Leadership and Scholarship
Educational Discovery
As well as studying for a postgraduate qualification, you will be able to seek recognition by Advance HE as an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

You will have the opportunity to study alongside qualified clinicians from different clinical backgrounds and career stages, and will study as part of a supportive, diverse multi-disciplinary group, supported by leading educational researchers and practitioners.

This postgraduate qualification can also be taken by students studying for an undergraduate medical degree as an intercalated MSc (iMSc)

Entry Requirements

Either a Bachelors degree (or equivalent qualification) in a clinical discipline, in which you are actively practicing, and in which you hold appropriate professional registration or licensing.

Or a Bachelors degree in another subject with evidence of recent experience and/or current involvement in clinical education.

Applications from registered healthcare professionals without an undergraduate degree but who can demonstrate relevant experience will be considered on their individual merits.
