Graduates of a Masters in Clinical Education go on to be successful in the various education contexts, expanding their pedagogic practice in diverse professional environments. The award can be the springboard for leadership opportunities, in clinical and teaching positions. Encouraged by the research dissertation, some graduates pursue further research, including doctoral theses. The various characteristics of such a programme facilitate your learning because you are provoked by the huge personal commitment that you are undertaking. Together with the content and concepts that challenge, you develop critical thinking and this is a significant transferable skill. A Master’s degree is motivational, for it influences and inspires personal self-confidence that contributes to career success. This may be as a clinical educator within the NHS, further and higher education, and other areas aligned within public and private sector providers.
