The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Teaching (GCertClinTeach) has evolved from the university’s successful Graduate Certificate in University Teaching (GCUT). It uses much of the same proven pedagogy while locating learning within the clinical context to ensure that it resonates with busy clinicians. In recognition of workforce demands, participants will be able to choose between monthly contact days based at the Parkville campus four times per semester, or an intensive program with four days in the one week.
The GCertClinTeach has four practically-orientated subjects and will be delivered in association with the Centre for the Study of Higher Education, blending learners with the CSHE’s GCUT stream when appropriate. The GCertClinTeach will be unique in the international marketplace for its quality, flexibility and immediate utility.
Clinicians who gain the University of Melbourne GCertClinTeach will be valued for their commitment to clinical teaching. Those who progress to the Grad Dip will be recognised for their advanced knowledge and skills, and those who undertake the Masters program for their demonstrated excellence in clinical education.
It is the first in a pathway of award courses being developed by FMDHS (along with the Grad Dip Clin Ed and M Clin Ed). It is primarily intended as a high quality professional development opportunity for those clinicians who teach clinical learners (at all levels) in healthcare settings.
