In light of current circumstances, the Clinical Educator Programme (CEP) has made the decision to cancel all face-to-face teaching during March, April, May and June 2020. This includes Clinical Educator Programme workshops, teaching observation & feedback sessions, writing groups, CEP Faculty training events and meetings. We will endeavour to rearrange where we can, dependent on tutor and room availability, and will update you when we know more. In the meantime, we can still be contacted by email at if you have any queries.

If you teach University of Edinburgh medical undergraduates, then our Clinical Educator Programme (CEP) is for you.

CEP is a free programme of workshops* focused on medical education.

All our workshops are CPD accredited by the Royal Colleges.

Mission Statement

The Clinical Educator Programme develops and supports a faculty of medical educators within South East Scotland to promote, deliver and maintain excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education in line with the UK Professional Standards Framework and the General Medical Council Recognition of Trainers’ requirements.

Our Programme is mapped to the UK Professional Standards Framework.

You can find more information about the UKPSF on the HEA's website.

* Within South East Scotland only. Charges apply for anyone who wishes to participate in the Programme and teaches outwith South East Scotland. Please contact for more information.
