Research Methods in Clinical Education

Are you a clinical educator who has questions about teaching or research? Would you like to develop a theoretical knowledge base that you can apply to your own work, in your own context?

This module will benefit anyone in clinical practice who wants to gain a critical understanding of research methodology appropriate to clinical education, leading to a written research proposal and feeding into a submission for ethical approval.

You will learn to:

  • Formulate your focussed research question from systematic searches for evidence
  • Compare and contrast different paradigms and approaches to your research in medical education
Induction module

Before completing the course, you will undertake our Induction and Professional Development module, introducing you to all the underpinning regulations, guidance and support available to you during your postgraduate study.
