The Medical School and the Centre for Life Long Learning in Liverpool have teamed up to deliver a programme in professionally focussed education which is informed by experience and the latest research in both education and healthcare education.

Our graduates leave with a clear understanding of theory, but have also developed their skills and experience in applying that theory to real and practical situations. The blended learning approach which we have adopted (even for the full-time programme) means that we draw on current real experiences in shaping the way in which we think about the challenges that are faced by anyone who is involved in health care professions education.

The Master’s programme is open to anyone who has an interest and involvement in teaching students or trainees in the healthcare professions. Participants have ranged from intercalating medical students to experienced practitioners.

Why School of Medicine?

Teaching Excellence

The School's well-known for its innovative curriculum and high quality teaching. This was recognised when we were made a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Whether you want to develop a specialism or achieve your career goals we have the answer, with our wide choice of postgraduate programmes. Here you'll gain the very latest knowledge and skills, under the guidance of academic staff who are all active researchers.

Focussing on your needs

Every professional has their own unique needs, so we take a flexible approach by blurring the boundaries between our taught programmes and continuous professional development courses. As a result you can, if you want to, select CPD modules that are most relevant to your work and then compile these, with further study, into a Masters qualification.

Innovative, flexible courses and programmes.

Through our pioneering work with our online partner, Laureate Online, we offer a flexible range of well supported delivery modes to suit your needs, whether you are in currently in work or furthering your education directly from an undergraduate programme.

The medical school in Liverpool has been at the forefront of medical education for many years

We now offer a range of modules and short courses which are designed to help colleagues progress in their careers, from training as a educational supervisor, through to a postgraduate study for a Masters degree.
