Associate tutors with specialist expertise from the University also contribute to specific courses including:

  • Ruth Jenkins, CMVM Liaison Librarian

Other contributors for dentistry, nursing and professions allied to medicine also participate.


Research is an integral part of the Clinical Education programme; it informs our teaching, which is delivered by a research active multiprofessional team.  Where possible, we give participants the opportunity to contribute directly to our programme of research through the MSc dissertation and we support graduates to disseminate their work via conferences, peer reviewed journals and our own series of research briefings.

Research interests of tutors involved with the programme include:

  • Graduate attributes
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Inter-professional education
  • Experiences of online learning and teaching
  • Memory, media and learning
  • Junior doctors as teachers
