Education Research

Transforming medical education through research

In the Faculty of Medicine we pride ourselves on providing educational experiences and programmes which are evidence-based and underpinned by the latest educational research. As well as having a large number of teachers and programme designers with formal postgraduate qualifications in education, we have a growing number who are active education researchers in their own right.

Our current fields of educational research activity in the Faculty of Medicine and our partner NHS Trusts include:

  • development of new assessment methods 
  • peer-assisted learning 
  • technology enhanced learning 
  • sustainability in healthcare education 
  • support of underrepresented groups 
  • coaching for health education
