One of the key strengths of the Master of Health Professions Education course relates to the varied educational and occupational backgrounds of the staff and students undertaking the course. I have found it invaluable to learn from the experiences of others, their perceived mistakes, the settings in which they have occurred and the overall outcomes achieved.Dr Andrew Lim, Consultant Rheumatologist
The course has given me the opportunity to apply the theory of teaching and learning in the workplace. It has opened my eyes to better ways of enhancing learning for therapists and it is rewarding to know I am now providing education with a sound theory behind it.Sonja de Munck, Occupational Therapist
