For busy doctors,
The online teaching course created with your lifestyle in mind. Bite sized chunks of relevant and practical knowledge. It goes through all the types of teaching you're most likely to need in a medical context - bedside, small groups, PowerPoint, lectures... if you do it, we teach you how!
Better than classroom teacher training courses
With over 12 hours of content, our train the trainer course covers all aspects of clinical teaching from adult learning theory to how to be a good presenter. It has everything you would cover in a face-to-face course without the hassle (or the price tag!). Learn it all, in your own time.
At home, hospital
Wherever you are, this online medical course goes with you. Access the course via the website, on your tablet or phone. Get our app to access the course, and save modules for offline (great for the tube or the wilderness!). Everything is split into convenient chunks that you can do when it suits you, wherever that may be!
How long does this course take?
We aimed to create an extensive, in-depth teaching course to be better than the traditional expensive classroom courses, that could be done in the comfort of your own pace and place of choice. Hence, the recommended time for the medical online teaching course is 12 hours, although the actual time taken will depend on how quickly you assimilate the information.
To successfully complete the course you will need to pass in-module and end of module quizzes, as well as a final test before we issue a certificate of completion. There will also be up to two assignments which will require you to use your new teaching skills in the workplace, evidenced with feedback or a report.
What does this course include?
This course is an extensive, in-depth online teaching course specifically aimed at doctors and healthcare professionals all over the world to improve on the expensive and cumbersome classroom courses.
You will be covering a full range of topics from core adult learning theory to the basis of objective setting and giving feedback to the practicalities of planning and delivering bedside teaching. Everything covered in a traditional train the trainer course, and more.
Of course, as teaching is inherently an interpersonal skill, part of the course will ask you to use the skills you are learning in real life and submit assignments in the form of either reports on a teaching session or feedback from your peers or students.
See our course page for more details on the modules included.
How much is the course?
The course is £139 and includes all the online content, full support from our team for the duration of the course and a certificate of completion. This is the cheapest and best value teach the teacher / train the trainer course available – most courses are in excess of £390.
How points can I get for my application?
Claiming points for teaching is getting harder and harder. The course is over 12 hours in content, well over the average teaching time of a 2 day course. As of 2022, the application scoring system for training in teaching for IMT and ST3 applications has changed. This course will be worth 1 point, instead of the 2 points from previous years. This is because a diploma or PGCert in teaching is now required to attain 2 points.
Is the course accredited?
Yes! As of November 2020 the Erudical course is CPD accredited. Also remember that every person that completes the course will get a formal certificate of completion to allow them to claim points for their job application as well as add to their portfolio.
How many CPD points do I get?
Our course is CPD certified, but as each professional body counts differently, we can’t answer that question for you. For example, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) give 1 point for every 1 hour spent. So you have to find out how your points are logged, and then claim points based on that. So that means, you can get up to 12 points for the RCP!
What if I can't finish the course?
The medical online teaching course is designed to take 12 hours, to be done in your own time, and is therefore available to you to complete in 6 weeks. If at the end of this you require more time to finish off certain modules then an extension can be purchased on the website for a further 6 weeks of access.
If you are unable to finish the course we will not be able to give you a certificate of completion.
