The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Teaching is a professional development opportunity for clinicians who teach clinical learners of all levels in healthcare settings.
On successful completion, you will be able to:
- Understand the principles of effective clinical teaching, learning and assessment
- Critically analyse research underpinning clinical teaching
- Prepare and deliver effective, efficient and appropriate clinical teaching in a variety of settings
- Understand the academic basis of effective clinical teaching.
The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Teaching is the first in a suite of courses designed for clinical teachers offered as part of the Excellence in Clinical Teaching (EXCITE) program.
Designed to broaden the skills of professionals who deliver clinical education, this one-year part time course hones transferable skills and knowledge to make teaching more efficient, enjoyable and effective. Among a stimulating peer group, this practical and immersive award course will allow you to achieve the same excellence in your teaching as in your clinical work.
