The new blended-learning Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical and Professional Education has been popular both nationally and internationally. We have run three modules this year and have the exciting Leadership module starting later this month. Furthermore, we are adding two further research-based modules to our portfolio for students to enable students to upgrade to a Diploma.
In addition, we have launched our first taster Continuing Professional Development module through UCLeXtend. This 3-hour module in Work Place Based Assessments is open access and will allow interested students to complete the module in their own time as well as incite enthusiasm to enrol on further Masters Modules.
Alongside our blended learning modules, staff across UCLMS continue to provide teaching and tutoring for the RCP/UCL PG Cert, Dip and MSc in Medical Education. We have also hosted medical education evening seminars in the museums of UCL. There have been both international and national speakers with introductions given by the curators of the museums. Our next seminar on 4th May, ‘Patient as Paper‘, will be held in the UCL Art Museum. We have invited an artist, Emma Barnard, to speak about her collaborative work with a consultant ENT surgeon involving patients that have experienced head and neck surgery. The museum will also be exhibiting their collection of surgical head and neck artwork to coordinate with the theme. Book your free ticket here!
Lastly, we are organising an educational conference on the 28th June celebrating Inspiring Women in Leadership roles in healthcare. We have invited eminent women to tell their career life stories. The speakers are from different aspects of healthcare from research to charitable organisations, from medical schools to Royal Colleges to Deaneries and many more! We are hoping it will be an exciting event that will inspire and empower women to pursue leadership roles.
