PGDip/MSc in Gastroenterology
Thursday, 03 March 2016 15:36
The Diploma is taught from October until April the following year. There is approximately 10 hours of teaching per week plus tutorials regularly throughout the course. The programme consists of a combination of lectures, small group tutorials and practical sessions. The programme makes use of a variety of on-line teaching methods but the bulk of teaching is recorded live and made available later on the day of the teaching.
Distance Learning (DL) students access the teaching through the dedicated University on-line teaching environment (QMPlus) and review all lectures and other teaching sessions, these can be accessed on all equipment and can be download as pod- or vod-casts allowing off line review. On line live tutorials are arranged every 1-2 weeks and gastroenterology teaching fellows act as primary contacts and mentors for the DL students.
To complete the MSc, students undergo either a research project (MSc Gastroenterology) or case series report (MSc Clinical Gastroenterology) submitting the final thesis in the middle of August.
Distance learning students initially enrol as PG Dip students but can transfer once dissertations and funding are finalised.
The first part is the taught aspect of the course (120 credits, equivalent to a Diploma) which is divided into 6 modules. All modules are compulsory and run from October to April.

RCP e-learning module "Assessing Trainees in the Workplace"
Tuesday, 07 July 2015 13:57
The Education Department at the Royal College of Physicians of London have produced a new e-learning module, called "Assessing Trainees in the Workplace". The package is aimed at any doctor who is responsible for assessing other trainees, and covers feedback, Supervised Learning Events (SLEs) and Workplace-based assessments (WPBAs). It is primarily designed for physicians but may be of interest to any secondary care doctor, particularly those who are being revalidated or who are seeking continuing professional development. The College is offering individual doctors the option to purchase the package, and have also made it available to trusts and other health organisations, to purchase on behalf of their doctors.
