PCert - Strategic Leadership and Medical Education
The School of Sport and Exercise Sciences is one of the most exciting and innovative sports schools in the UK.
The School is based on the University’s award-winning Medway campus and has well-equipped, state-of the-art sports science laboratories, sports therapy clinic, sports rehabilitation gymnasium and respiratory clinic. The University of Kent has recently benefited from the development of Medway Park, an £11 million project to create a regional centre of sporting excellence that was an approved pre-Olympic training camp venue for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Medway Park has hosted a number of major sporting events, such as the Modern Pentathlon World Cup and European Championships.
This programme for potential and existing GP trainers has been developed in association with the Kent, Surrey and Sussex (KSS) GP Deanery. Any doctor wishing to become a GP trainer in KSS should take this programme.
The programme gives you an opportunity to develop high-level reflection on experience gained through practice and also the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of the complexities of inter-disciplinary working. The programme follows a flexible, modular format with blended learning approaches. A high standard of teaching is delivered by experienced academic and specialist staff and the programme is recognised by national and local employers.
The programme of study is designed to be flexible and related to the work needed to be done to become accredited as a trainer or will enhance the work necessary to be done to be reaccredited as a trainer. The programme has been designed as portfolio-based learning which takes account of the existing work you undertake as a clinician.
The initial award is for a postgraduate certificate but further programmes are being developed which will lead to a diploma and onwards to a Master’s degree. Once enrolled you may elect which stages of the pathway you wish to complete. For GP educators who already have a postgraduate certificate or diploma, it will be possible to enter the programme at the appropriate level of study.
