Certificate in Clinical Teaching and Supervision

The Certificate in Clinical Teaching and Supervision is designed to broaden the educational skills and understanding of any doctors who teach medical students, including prevocational doctors in training, and/or specialist registrars. It will be especially useful for those teaching into the Joint Medical Program (UON and UNE). The course will enable you to achieve the same degree of excellence in teaching and assessing that you currently have in your clinical work. The four core and two selective modules will enhance your skills in areas that you feel could benefit from discussion with like minded peers and experts in the field, and help make your teaching more effective and gratifying.

The course is taught through short face-to-face sessions, group work and personal study, and assessed through brief activity reports. There will be a modest amount of assessment required to achieve the award of the Certificate.

On completion of the certificate you will be able to:

  • Understand and use the principles of effective clinical teaching, learning and assessment
  • Locate and analyse research in these areas
  • Apply this research to your own practice
  • Construct and deliver effective teaching and learning events in a variety of academic and clinical settings
