The MSc Clinical Medicine (Teaching and Learning) has been developed by practicing NHS Consultants and Health Academics in consultation with National Health Service (NHS) Trust Partners. The course is designed for Medical Doctors and other Healthcare Professionals

who are looking to develop and refine their teaching and learning, research skills and develop understanding of effective teamwork and best practice. The MSc Clinical Medicine (Teaching and Learning) aims to enhance teaching, learning and research skills, thereby, facilitating personal and professional development and strengthening participants’ ability to bring about positive change, solve problems effectively, and ensure patient safety.

The Teaching and Learning Masters will be differentiated from the other Masters routes by its structure, by the demonstration of a deepening understanding of self-development as a reflective learner and as a clinical teacher utilising modules 7ED001 (Critical Reflection & Reflexivity in Professional Learning) and 7HR013 (Design and Deliver Medical Education) and within the Masters dissertation in module 7HW015.

This course has a strong emphasis on the evaluation and development of both clinical practice, research, and encourages participants to reflect critically on workplace experiences and learning. For participants, the course aims to provide a clear framework which supports CPD, recognition of prior learning and work based learning.

The course aims to provide a route for Doctors who wish to take a different speciality, to change medical career routes and for Doctors seeking further accreditation of subspecialty expertise.
