Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education
(face-to-face pathway)
with progression to Diploma and Masters in Clinical Education
Route for students completing BAOS Teaching and Learning course
Are you passionate about teaching and learning? Do you want to develop your confidence and competence as a teacher?
Our Masters in Clinical Education programme will develop your understanding of clinical education in practice, whilst also increasing your critical engagement with the evidence base in learning and teaching.
The programme incorporates both practical elements – such as teaching observations, group work and online activities – and sustained development of your academic and research skills. The Certificate stage of the programme has been accredited by the Academy of Medical Educators and is also aligned with Advance HE’s (formerly Higher Education Academy) UK Professional Standards Framework for teaching and learning in Higher Education.
Individuals who have completed the ‘Teaching and Learning for Clinicians’ course approved by the British Association of Oral Surgeons (BAOS), are able to apply for the Postgraduate Certificate stage of the programme with a reduced pattern of attendance. On successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate, you will be eligible to continue your studies with the Diploma in Clinical Education – and finally, if you should so wish, complete your Masters with a dissertation.
For more information about the programme, please visit our programme webpages at:
https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/pgcert-clinical-education

Postgraduate Certificate = 60 credits made up of the following modules:
CLI713 Clinical Education Practice: Theory, Evidence and Application (30 credits, Autumn)
In this module, you will develop a deep understanding of the role of the clinical educator in a range of settings. You will critically engage with educational research, reflect on your role, practice and professional values and to engage in peer review of teaching as a structured, formal process.
There are two assessments associated with the module: (i) a critical review of an aspect of clinical education, and (ii) a reflective presentation about an aspect of your educator role, with appendices including teaching observations.
If you have attended the BAOS course, you will be supported to complete the assignments with access to online materials and our library resources via our Digital Learning Environment (DLE). Our tutors will also be available for one formally arranged tutorial for formative feedback, and at other times, via email, telephone or videoconference. However, we encourage students to attend the Induction day, and (unless alternative arrangements are agreed with the Module Lead) will also require attendance for the reflective presentation.
CLI714 Contemporary Issues in Clinical Education (30 credits, Spring)
This module will enable you to develop a deep understanding of contemporary issues in education, applied to the complex multi-professional environment of healthcare settings. The themes featured are subject to change, but reflect the increasingly diverse nature of clinical education and questions that continue to provoke debate. There will be two assessments: (i) an assessed microteach (which can be a video submission) and (ii) a written essay about a contemporary issue, with reference to education practice. There is an attendance requirement for this module (6 study days and a further day for the assessed microteach) and a formal tutorial for formative feedback. Again, tutors will be available for the formal tutorial and at other times via email, Skype or Facetime and telephone contact.
Progression
On successfully achieving the Postgraduate Certificate in Clinical Education, you will be eligible to apply for the Diploma stage of the programme. Full details of this are available on our website.

What our students say…
 ‘The breadth and depth of topics covered in the course helped me to gain a deeper understanding in the theories and principles that underpin healthcare education, teaching and assessment. We also had plenty of opportunities to present and teach each other on the course, which really helped to build my confidence for teaching dental students and trainees in clinic.’
 ‘A well-supported Masters degree with some of the nicest lecturers and staff I have met, who you can contact at any time with any question no matter whether it is their specific area or not! A great transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study.’
 ‘My tutors were always there to support, no matter how small or big the problem and always willing to provide one to one support… The various outside speakers and varied sessions were inspirational and provided some very good ideas for teaching methods.’
