Are you enthusiastic about helping clinical students learn? Do you see yourself leading quality improvements in education, for the benefit of students and patient care? This course is for qualified clinicians and clinical educators looking to improve their educational knowledge and skills.

The Edinburgh Summer School is packed with workshops to develop your skills around teaching, learning and assessment - and enough theory to give you the tools and the confidence to lead change, evaluate developments and ensure excellence in your future practice.

The social programme includes a Evening Reception and a Course Dinner and in the evenings you may wish to explore the potpourri of events in the internationally famous Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

See sessions and tutors for an outline programme. Further information is also available via the menu.

Thanks to the very well prepared programme of the Summer School and unusually experienced medical teachers and educationalists who tutored the sessions we could learn much more than we had expected. We had great opportunities to develop our personal teaching skills, discuss our points of view with colleagues from many medical universities from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada and Australia.
