This is the first clinical education course of its type in Ireland.
It equips a range of health professionals with the knowledge
and skills required for effective clinical education, and enables
them to become clinical supervisors and motivators of student
learning. Although much health professional education takes
place in clinical settings, few clinicians receive the formal training
in educational techniques and principles of adult learning
provided by this course.
The courses are delivered mostly by distance learning, with some
face-to-face workshops in Galway as follows:
• PDip: eight days (two consecutive weekdays in September
and six Saturdays between October and June).
• Master’s: ten days (two consecutive weekdays in each of
September, October, November, February and April).
