Following a successful first year for our new PG Certificate in Clinical and Professional Education, we are pleased to announce additional new and exciting modules joining our module portfolio for the 2016/17 academic year.
Alongside existing modules on Teaching and Learning in Medical Education, Introduction to Assessment, Leadership Skills, Clinical and Educational Supervision and Quality Improvement we have four new innovative modules on:
- Writing a Research Proposal for Clinical Education
- Qualitative Research Approaches for Clinical Education
- Teaching Ethics and Law
- Clinical Simulation
As well as forming part of a PG Cert/Dip/MSc in Clinical and Professional Education, these modules can also be studied as short courses for M level credit or as CPD (without assessment).

It has been a busy calendar in the postgraduate department .We ended the medical education seminar series for this year with the Whipps Cross resident artist, Emma Barnard talking to us about her art project with Head and Neck Cancer patients entitled ‘Patient as Paper’.
The ‘Inspiring Future Female Leaders’ conference was a huge success. It was a multiprofessional conference celebrating women reaching prominent leadership roles in diverse areas of medicine. We invited imminent women from universities, deaneries, charitable organisations, research, human resources, professional services and the Royal College Presidents. The feedback was resoundingly positive and many female trainees disillusioned in the current political and social climate reported the conference had repaired their resolve and inspired and re energised them. In addition, the conference has led to further forthcoming events and collaborations planned.
We also hosted an UCLMS Health colloquium where faculties shared and showcased their projects and ideas about communication. It was an thought-provoking event discussing the different aspects of clinical communication.
Lastly, we held our annual Trainees in Medical Education conference where we broached whether ‘Medical Education is the new speciality?’ Alongside diverse plenaries and workshops, we had an overwhelming selection of posters to display current medical education projects. This too was very well received and encouraging to see enthusiastic trainees enjoying and wanting to learn more about embarking on a career in medical education.
