About the Clinical Educator Programme

If you teach University of Edinburgh medical undergraduates, then our Clinical Educator Programme (CEP) is for you.  CEP is a free programme of courses focused on medical education. It is informal and interactive training that will help make sure your teaching is as effective and engaging as it can be. 

As part of the CEP you can: 

●      learn a range of teaching techniques 

●      take part in group discussions 

●      have your teaching observed and receive feedback on it 

●      get support to help you reflect on your teaching practice 

The Programme is free of charge for anyone who teaches Edinburgh Medical School students in Scotland. 

What participants have told us about the CEP 

"Thank you for the broad spectrum of skills I have improved on due to your excellent workshops" 

"The Clinical Educator Programme is a great resource, which has allowed me to become a better educator." 

"I would again like to pass on my congratulations to the CEP team for such a great program. I have found it of an exemplary quality throughout and would fully recommend to all my colleagues" 

"how lucky NHS Lothian employees are to have such a good, free, local programme that does exactly what is required by the GMC. I found my TOF session really beneficial" 

"Thanks so much for coming out to Fife and observing my teaching session. Thanks also for the feedback and genuine interest in my teaching. This really is a wonderful system that has been created in South East Scotland and we are very lucky to have your input" 

Regarding teaching observations - "Thank you for your positive and constructive comments – and your general enthusiasm. I found the whole experience much more pleasurable than I was expecting!" 

"I would just like to say what a positive experience I have found the Level 2 CEP. To be honest I was slightly cynical feeling that a Masters completed x years ago should be sufficient. I was wrong. I hope that there are sufficient resources to continue to offer feedback on teaching events. That was the high point for me and I can say that your feedback did give me new insights"
