PG Diploma/MA Education in Clinical Settings

KSS Deanery has developed, through its partnership with the University of Brighton, a Postgraduate Diploma and Masters programme which is designed to follow on from the Postgraduate Certificate - Teaching in Clinical Settings (or an appropriate PGCert course related to Clinical Education).

The programme is taught over two years in a schedule of full days, approximately once a month. Classes take place at the KSS Deanery.


The course is based on the premise that those teaching in clinical education need to develop a better understanding of their own clinical practice and values as well as developing in their practice as teachers. In addition, the course seeks to support the development of their role as educators by stimulating rigorous research into your practice as teachers, using an appropriate range of evidence and clearly-articulated educational principles.

The Course is designed to assist Health Professionals to:

  • Develop their understanding and practice in their role as an educator in clinical settings
  • Undertake research in areas related to their practice as an educator
  • Design and adapt the curriculum for education in clinical settings
  • Contribute to the development and provisions of inter-professional learning and teaching

Time and Place

The course will start in January 2013 and is based at the:

KSS Deanery, 7 Bermondsey St. London, SE1 2DD
