Clinical Educator Programme

The Clinical Educator Programme (CEP) provides medical educators within south-east Scotland with the support and community necessary for skill development and career growth in teaching and learning. Our goal is excellence in undergraduate and postgraduate medical education.

Specifically, the CEP aims to:   

  • provide accessible routes through which faculty and staff can enhance their teaching skills and knowledge 
  • guide and facilitate the development of a skilled educator community in south-east Scotland 
  • increase the motivation and satisfaction of faculty as educators 
  • give nationally-accredited recognition to those who can demonstrate proficiency in the educator role (Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy - AFHEA).
