Medical Education

Medical education research at BSMS has developed along with the undergraduate BM BS programme through the Department of Medical Education, a multi-professional group involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and learning.

Medical education research is being conducted as part of doctoral studies (MD/PhD/Professional Doctorate) and Masters programmes, as well as in collaboration with parent universities, by a multi-professional group of academics and clinicians.

The Department leads on the teaching of approximately 1000 undergraduate medical students and more than 600 postgraduate students. Our teaching is informed by our own pedagogic research, and the Department has hosted several PhD and MD students. There have been several innovations in teaching that have won national awards, including Time for Dementia, our virtual work experience for students interested in medicine and the Clinical and Professional Studies Unique Learning Environment (CAPSULE).
