Funding for simulation modules 2017

Yet again HEE (KSS) has agreed to support student bursaries for the two simulation modules in the PG Certificate at BSMS. In addition to bursaries we will be able to appoint another Teaching Fellow in Simulation in the department of medical education from September 2017 onwards. This post will support both the simulation teaching programmes and the Physician Associate studies whilst focussing upon a project studying the provision of ‘in situ’ simulation across the KSS region.

Applications are welcomed and interviews will start on May 16th.

Validation of PG Certificate

Good news!

The PG Cert has been jointly validated by Brighton & Sussex Universities. The application process will therefore change very soon for those wanting to embark upon the PG Cert from April 1st onwards. For those of you who have already attended the modules and are waiting to submit work for assessment, you will have to apply online after this date which then provides access to student central and various study skills available to PG students.

Each of you will be emailed soon to explain the process in full, but if in doubt contact Andy Collins.

Bursaries are available for both simulation based modules (but not for MDM28).

For applicants wishing to study on the modules for CPD purposes then please use the single module application form (see hyperlink under courses).
