Combine your passions for health and education with our Higher Education Academy PG Cert focusing on simulation in medical and healthcare education. Equip yourself to become a leader of the future in this specialised field.
Simulation-based education in health professions is growing. This PGCert will give you the opportunity to study those principles specific to teaching and learning using simulation, irrespective of the resources available. A broader holistic view of education, exploring curriculum design and the socio-cultural context of education, completes the programme.
You’ll benefit from the inter-disciplinary nature of the course, attracting applicants from across the range of healthcare professions including medicine, nursing, midwifery and paramedicine.
By both participating in and facilitating sessions in our high fidelity simulation suite, in the School of Medicine, you’ll develop an appreciation of all the elements that contribute to successful simulation based learning. You’ll engage in personal reflective activities, as well as attend formal teaching, giving you the theory underpinning the practice.
On completion of the PGCert you may wish to continue your studies and progress to the full Masters Award in Medical and Healthcare Education.
