Course Overview

This module will provide you with an introduction to teaching in clinical settings. You will cover the key educational theories regarding how students learn with particular reference to clinical settings and the education and training needs of all professionals within the NHS. This will aid a deeper understanding of the complexity of clinical education and how to achieve effective teaching and learning in the role of a clinical teacher. 

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
