The MA Education for Clinical Contexts has been developed in recognition of the way that educators working in and around clinical contexts in the UK face many pressures. In particular, the drive for high quality education in increasingly busy and financially straitened clinical environments requires a re-evaluation of the way educators and clinical trainers in the NHS are prepared for their roles. This programme is a response to these challenges and seeks to prepare you to be able to engage critically with the complex roles of:
• teacher, supervisor and learner;
• curriculum developer;
• ethical leader, and innovative change agent of programmes in clinical education;
• active researcher of clinical educational practice in your workplace setting.
The unique aspect of this MA Education for Clinical Contexts is that it focuses on workplace learning, giving you opportunities to understand the complex relationships between practice and theory through researching, leading and developing teaching and learning in your own clinical setting
