The RCP has access to experienced teachers, supervisors and mentors in healthcare, who also hold senior roles such as consultant posts and medical education leads in their hospitals. These doctors join the RCP and UCL faculty of medical educationalists to tutor on the programme and present sessions throughout the taught modules. This is a valuable opportunity for students to learn from other doctors who are leading by example and bringing the taught components of the programme to life.
UCL is one of the top universities in the world with fantastic research strengths, and a genuine commitment to educational excellence. This combination of academic excellence, grounded in the reality of service delivery and development, sets this masters programme apart from others.
This is a part-time, modular masters programme taught at the RCP in London, which can be completed in 3–5 years. This is a cumulative programme and early exit with a Certificate (after first year) or Diploma (after second year) is possible.
This programme is specifically designed for doctors wishing to develop their roles as educators. Participants will learn to use appropriate teaching strategies and educational theories to enhance the way they support learning. The MSc in Medical Education is ideally suited to doctors in any specialty, such as medicine, surgery and public health.
