University of Exeter

Clinical Education is specifically designed for doctors and healthcare professionals wishing to develop their roles as clinical educators. The programme is designed in response to the increasing expectation from the clinical and academic world that those teaching on clinically based programmes have a formal qualification in education.

The themes running through the programme are a comprehensive introduction to clinical education, coaching and mentoring, principles of assessment and practical delivery of teaching. The programme looks at clinical education from a new more practical standpoint based on the reality of delivering clinical education in modern healthcare environments. The course is evidence-based – incorporating the latest research and current issues in academic clinical education. Some of this research has been carried out by the course tutors, consisting of highly experienced clinical educators and researchers.
