Description

Combine your joint passions for health and education with our MSc in Medical and Healthcare Education, which will prepare to become one of the educational leaders of the future in the healthcare sector.

This inspiring course will give you a good grounding in methods of learning and teaching specifically in the healthcare context.

Teaching includes large group discussions, seminars, group work, work-based discussions and e-learning. By the time you graduate, your independent thinking and practice and your advanced knowledge base will mean you're well placed to act as a role model, educator and mentor in an inter-professional context.

Our course is also designed to make sure you fully recognise the significance of the values and principles of care promoted by the NHS Constitution (Department of Health, 2010).

You’ll be able to engage in reflective activity in the workplace as well as attend formal teaching lectures, seminars and workshops. When you're on campus, you can make full use of our libraries and computer suites; you can also access our Virtual Learning Environment anywhere with internet access.

Important information
What are the course objectives?

On this course you’ll develop an educational, training or mentoring role in your sector of healthcare. It’ll help your career path in education alongside clinical practice, enhancing your role in your team and enabling you to make a real difference.

Our MSc meets the professional body requirements for nursing and midwifery: it will allow you to work towards the Nursing and Midwifery College (NMC) practice teacher role and the NMC Stage 4 teacher recordable qualification. It also provides evidence to gain GP Trainer status and as a student, you can apply for a fellowship with Anglia Ruskin and the Higher Education Academy.

Is this course for me?

As our course is open to people from a wide range of healthcare environments, you’re likely to find yourself studying alongside doctors, consultants, nurses, dentists, midwives and allied health professionals, enriching your student experience. Inter-professional learning is key to the development of this course and many of our lecturers are also professionals in the healthcare field.

Requirements: Candidates will require a minimum of 3 years post professional registration/experience and a minimum of a 2:2 degree honours. Students must be registered practitioners in the field of health or social care. It is anticipated therefore that students undertaking the course will currently be employed in professional practice and will be engaged in facilitating teaching and learning as part of their professional role.
