Why work with us?
A proven track record
The medical education team at Manchester excels in the teaching and learning of medicine. We have world-leading expertise in international partnerships and educational technology.
We were the first UK medical school to introduce problem based learning (PBL) in the 1990s and we have continued with our tradition of innovation.
We hosted the University Medical Assessment Partnership (UMAP), a JISC funded project which went on to form the basis of the Medical School Council’s Assessment Alliance. This ground-breaking work has led to an improvement in the quality of knowledge-based assessment by multiple choice questions across UK medical schools and influenced similar projects across the globe.
More recently, we have innovated in social accountability, with a focus on world-leading education in clinical communication and the Doubleday Centre for Patient Experience.
Manchester is a truly global university, and our medical education reflects this international outlook with experience of internationalism and working across global regions.
Our team have worked in Uganda, India, Tanzania, Mozambique, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other countries in higher education institutions and in clinical areas including acute illness management, safety in the operating room and mental health nursing.
Evidence-based education is at the heart of all we do and our team are education researchers.
We have a commitment to capacity building in education research and scholarship, and have trained supervised health professionals from around the world in education research design, conduct, analysis and publication.
Our people are leaders in health professional education regionally, nationally and internationally.
We are a great team, and this means we can draw on a vast quantity and variety of expertise when we are working with our partners or delivering excellent education locally.
