The University of Cambridge Postgraduate Diploma [PGDip] in Clinical Medicine has been designed collaboratively by the University of Cambridge, Institute of Continuing Education; and the School of Clinical Medicine’s Clinical Deanery. The PGDip is a continuation of the Postgraduate Certificate [PGCert] in Clinical Research, Education and Leadership and provides a progression route to the one year Masters [MSt] in Clinical Medicine. It is a one-year, part-time Master’s-level course resulting in 60 FHEQ Level-7 credits and the University of Cambridge award. The course is delivered through blended learning methods using a combination of face-to-face sessions requiring attendance in Cambridge, self-directed learning and supported through a virtual learning environment [VLE]. Please note that this will be reviewed in line with the latest public health guidance available at any given time. If required, to ensure the health and safety of students, we may look to utilise alternative teaching formats and will contact students if we expect changes to the course delivery
Applications are invited from healthcare staff including doctors, dentists, nurses and allied health professionals. The PGDip is only open to those who have successfully completed the PGCert in Clinical Research, Education and Leadership (formerly known as the PGCert in Clinical Medicine) at the Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge. Courses undertaken in other universities will not count as credits towards this PGDip. Students who complete their PGDip in Clinical Medicine can apply to the MSt in Clinical Medicine. Please note: the maximum break in study between awards is five years, provided that you maintain relevant clinical experience. The full MSt in Clinical Medicine must be completed in a maximum of eight years.
