The MSt in Medical Education is part of the Institute of Continuing Education’s (ICE) award-bearing suite of postgraduate awards in Medical Education for educators, educational leaders and researchers.  The MSt builds on and provides progression from the very successful PG Certificate and PG Diploma courses in Medical Education. 

Increasingly, doctors, dentists and other healthcare professionals are seeking flexible career pathways that allow them to develop a portfolio of work in areas of specialty or interest– education being one of these. The part-time MSt in Medical Education has an emphasis on educational development and research activity, providing opportunities for participants to put their educational knowledge to use in their own context(s) of practice.  

The programme is only open to those who have successfully completed the University of Cambridge Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Education.

Course delivery: We plan to deliver our postgraduate and MSt qualifications in-person in the academic year 2022-23. Please note that this will be reviewed in line with the latest public health guidance available at the time. If required, to ensure the health and safety of students, we may look to utilise alternative teaching formats and will contact students if we expect changes to the course delivery.
