The Centre for Medical Education Research is comprised of a multidisciplinary group of research and teaching staff located across Durham and Queens Campuses.
Medical Education Research is concerned with the education and training of the clinical team to enhance performance and professionalism, for the benefit of patients and society.
Our vision is specifically to develop research to understand and improve the working of the clinical team in the changing context of healthcare. Our research is informed by a number of perspectives: clinical, patient, social and policy. By drawing on multidisciplinary expertise, we aim to identify relevant changes, question the assumptions behind them, and work towards a shared vision and understanding of new directions in healthcare. This will contribute to the development of future policy and practice in medical education and across the healthcare team.
The research activity of the Centre falls under a number of themes, and has a variety of funding sources, with partners and collaborators in higher education and the NHS. Please follow the links in the sidebar to the left to find out more.
Members of the Centre also contribute teaching to the MBBS Stage 1 programme delivered at Queens Campus and to the MSc Medical Education programme.
We are always interested in exploring new avenues of research. If you are interested in a research collaboration, please contact a member of staff via our website
