Co-delivered by Lancaster Medical School and CETAD, this course is designed to meet the GMC’s Strategy that all those involved in the development and education of doctors should be competent in principles of medical education. Students will be able to develop and consolidate their knowledge and understanding of core principles of medical education, enhance their skills as a medical educator, and evidence their competence in line with the Academy of Medical Educator’s learning domains. The MSc includes development in specialist aspects of medical education through modules and a work-based medical education project. Students may also make a claim (APL) to gain credits for exemption from some modules.
Students will be able to discover the global challenges facing the environment through a series of fascinating topics that are brought to life out in the field and in dedicated state-of-the-art laboratories.

Covering both natural and man-made environments, the programme will explore the main factors and processes that control today’s environment; how the environment has evolved to its current state; and how environmental conditions may change in the future. Throughout the degree, students will be taught by internationally-renowned academics, and will have access to the state-of-the-art laboratories, which offer excellent facilities for practical work.
