Educational collaboration and development
Development of collaborative educational initiatives
The Faculty of Medicine works closely with academic and clinical partners to develop world-leading, collaborative educational initiatives; within the UK and the international context. Working closely with key personnel within Imperial, the Imperial NHS Trust Hospitals, Governmental and professional bodies, and other partners, an integral part of the Faculty’s collaborative work is to directly inform the educational models, quality assurance frameworks and strategies that support these initiatives. Where necessary, we accommodate the key nuances of specific contexts within our solution delivery approach and methodology; to ensure that agreed solutions are fit-for-purpose in their proposed setting.
A key example of the Faculty's educational collaborations is the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore.
Driving research into medical education strategy and methodology
The Faculty has a world-class research community which actively engages in medical education research, with a purpose of enhancing medical education strategy and methodology across the Faculty; thus also enhancing the student experience. In doing so, it embeds empirical evidence of good practice - derived from its body of research - to inform the development of collaborative educational initiatives, their pedagogies and models.
The Medical Education Research Unit specialises in improving programmes of study and our teaching through a shared interest in medical education research.
