The Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education programme is committed to promoting excellence in learning and teaching for health professionals. This distance learning programme is delivered entirely online and has been established since 2008. This innovative programme is for all medical, dental and other health professionals who aim to professionalise the role of the clinician as teacher.

This part-time distance learning programme leads to the award of a Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education.

It recognises the diverse, complex and challenging contexts of both those new to educator roles and responsibilities and those with considerable years of experience. The overall aim of the course is to develop a community of educators committed to promote improvements in both ‘what’ and ‘how’ we teach future healthcare professionals.

The course is highly practical and aims to model best practice in learning and teaching and draws upon a wide range of innovative approaches to learner support and development. The course is organised into a series of modules that involve interactive activities delivered within an online environment. These activities are conducted within groups, each one being facilitated by an online tutor. This affords an opportunity to explore the module topic through discussion and clarification of understanding and also gives the opportunity and time to apply new learning through the online discussions, tasks, webinars and assignments. Through this there is ample time to reflect on own practise and to share experiences and new insights with colleagues. This is a truly interactive programme.

A comprehensive menu of online modules will allow you to contribute to critical dialogues that promote deeper insights into educational theory and principles applied to clinical practice.

The programme is accredited by the Higher Education Academy, conferring Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy upon successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education and evidence of engagement with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF). The programme is also aligned to the Academy of Medical Educators professional standards enabling you to apply for recognition of the Academy of Medical Educators.

We have a three week induction module to introduce the practise of Medical Education, familiarise you with the online learning platform, and facilitate initial contact with your peers, personal tutors and online tutors.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2019/20. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2019.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The course uses a wide range of online approaches to learner support and development. Learning and teaching methods encompass a range of strategies and techniques to promote co-operative, purposeful learning. The teaching takes place online in group settings, which are facilitated by online tutors. There are a variety of tasks in each module where there is the opportunity for discussion, debate, exploration and peer interaction designed to enhance learning in addition to guided and independent study. Online tutors play a key role in the delivery of teaching for each module.

Practical application is a key feature of the course, and you will be encouraged to try out new approaches to teaching and learning throughout the programme. Synthesising your knowledge and applying theory to practice within your own clinical teaching setting will be a central requirement of both formal assessment and formative work.

Opportunities to develop your team working and collaboration skills will be available through your tasks and activities within discussion lists and wikis and general engagement in debate and exploration with tutors and peer groups.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will receive written feedback on all your assignments, in addition, there are many opportunities throughout the course to receive peer and tutor feedback. You will be allocated a personal tutor who will support your progress on the course, monitoring your general progress, discussing relevant issues and providing advice, guidance and support. They will contact you at various points in the course. There are a variety of tasks and activities in each module and you will discuss a range of educational issues through engagement in these with online tutors and peers. Personal tutors will comment on your reflective blog if you wish, and this exchange is an opportunity for you to engage in a dialogue about your educational roles, responsibilities and experiences in your clinical setting. This will also be done through your personal development maps and educational discussion in the discussion fora. 

At the start of the course you will complete a practice assignment, designed to help you appreciate the nature of the course requirements and inform your learning/development. In addition, you will receive formative feedback via the online discussions and contact from your personal tutor.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

You will be assessed in a variety of ways both to inform learning (formative) and to assess learning (summative) and all assignment tasks are linked to your educational practise. For example, typical assignments may relate to designing and producing some instructional media for a specific teaching need you identify, critically reviewing an assessment method you identify, reflecting on your experience of participating in peer review of teaching.

Postgraduate Certificate Alumni say…

“I have always been interested in medical education and recently developed this interest further by undertaking work as a tutor for medical students.  Embarking on the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education seemed a natural progression. Since starting the course I feel that my teaching skills have improved significantly. The course has introduced me to educational theories that have deepened my understanding of what makes an effective teacher and of which teaching techniques offer the best results. The support offered through this online programme is excellent and provides constructive learning through remote access. Completing this programme has benefited me as a teacher, and has thereby enhanced the learning experience of my students….”. LLinos Roberts, GP Partner and Trainer

As a clinician I have always enjoyed teaching and the opportunity to complete a Welsh Deanery supported PCCE via distance learning with Cardiff University was the perfect way to cement my practice and allow me to develop as an educator. The PGCE is both stimulating and challenging. It covers all areas from educational theory through to assessment methods in 4 modules…”. Lewys Richmond, ST6 Anaesthetic Trainee

“It is easy to follow and the online participation is very useful and stimulating. The work is broken up into modules and within the modules there are tasks that you are guided through. The online discussion with others is very helpful and reassuring. It helps to be able to actively discuss the work and the concepts being taught”. Sian Elin Griffiths, GP Partner and Trainer

“I have found the course a real eye opener and very interesting, it will definitely change the way I approach my role as a clinical tutor”. Una Man, Dentist
