Comments about Postgraduate Certificate Medical Education (a collaborative programme with Oxford Deanery) - At the institution - Oxford - Oxfordshire
This course is suitable for future general practice (GP) trainers, future undergraduate tutors and community nurse practice teachers involved in mentoring and supervision in primary care. Applicants should hold a UK or overseas degree from a recognised institution, or an equivalent professional or other qualification. GP teachers must have at least two years’ experience in general practice. This can be either as a principal or salaried partner, or as an assistant in a GMS or PMS practice. They should have a regular commitment to the practice of at least four sessions per week and be a member of the Royal College of General Practitioners. We will also consider practice managers, primary care nurses, primary care educators, or other primary care professionals with a minimum of two years’ experience in primary care, provided they are involved in training medical students, GP registrars or other learners in primary care. Oxford Deanery will cover the tuition/certificate costs of future GP trainers and undergraduate tutors from within the Oxford Deanery.
Postgraduate Certificate Medical Education
The postgraduate certificate in Medical Education, run by Oxford Brookes in collaboration with Oxford Deanery, aims to develop an understanding of the concept and theories of adult learning and to give you an appreciation of their application in one-to-one teaching in primary care. It also aims to develop your knowledge and skills in curriculum planning, assessment and feedback, and to encourage your professional and personal development through reflection and critical self-awareness.
The course involves a combination of residential modules and work-based learning. There are three residential modules, each lasting three days and involving a combination of small-group work and plenary sessions. Each module is designed to explore different aspects of teaching and learning:
* module one: Culture for Learning
* module two: Theory of Learning
* module three: Educational Skills and Practice.
Much of the work-based learning will reflect the day-to-day activities of modern general practice and will include preparation of the practice for training.
Teaching, learning and assessment
Assessment of your competency as a teacher in medical education is through completion of five assignments, a reflective diary, a personal development plan and a structured tutor’s report. Successful completion of each module will carry an award of 20 master’s level credits and successful completion of all three modules will result in the PGCert in Medical Education.
