      Student experience

      Irma, Intensive care physician

      "The people I interacted with were phenomenal; physiotherapists, speech pathologists, nurses, other doctors. Everybody had their challenges, but we learned a lot from each other and shared ideas and methods of teaching. It has really helped me develop my practice."

      Danielle, Speech Pathologist

      "The subject content has been taught from both a medical and educational perspective …I’ve found that really stimulating and very helpful in terms of being able to take elements of both approaches back to my workplace."

      Immersive and practical learning

      Learning is promoted through interactivity, context-bound case studies, best practice in health professions education (including synthesis of the latest research), and experiential learning, such as role plays, simulation-based activities, and problem-solving tasks. Participants are encouraged to reflect on their practice and to implement change amongst their own colleagues and workplaces.

      Wealth of teaching expertise

      Accomplished facilitators are drawn from a mix of clinical, educational and academic backgrounds. The course is led by coordinators who have disciplinary knowledge and understand its application to real clinical environments. Keynote sessions are delivered by leaders in the field and workshops are developed by skilled practitioners.

      Diverse professional network

      The program introduces participants to an exciting and diverse group of peers, who share a passion for teaching. Learning is promoted through the discussion of ideas, perceptions and experiences through small group work and online support.

      Learner-centred focus

      The course is delivered several times a year with a range of delivery options for busy clinicians. Assessment is developed to align with your work and allows practical application of your learning. The nested suite of award courses provides a choice of pathways for those seeking to improve teaching, through to those who are interested in developing a career in clinical education.
