Award Courses

Course Information

The Graduate Certificate is the first in a series of linked award courses aimed at those with a passion for teaching who are seeking a career in clinical education. Entry into the Master requires successful completion of the Graduate Certificate and Graduate Diploma.

While the Graduate Certificate is explicitly designed to support clinicians in the practical delivery of teaching in the clinical workplace, the Graduate Diploma provides a deeper understanding of the theories underpinning clinical education and their application in more complex situations and environments, as well as an emphasis on the role of evaluation in curriculum design. The Master program builds further with a focus on research-driven leadership as the key to excellence in clinical education. Clinicians will be able to ascend through the program to the level that best suits their academic and career goals.
