The Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education
As part of our philosophy we believe that all new educators or trainers should receive academic recognition of the work required to achieve this status. The Nottingham Trent University Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education represents an opportunity for the LETB to recognise the professional development of their educators..
Upon satisfactory completion of the Postgraduate Certificate you will become eligible to proceed on to a Trainer approval visit, and also move on to study on the DMU Diploma/Masters in Medical Education programme.
