CPD4707 Supporting the Postgraduate Learner in the Medical Workplace

Important information for students who have been offered a place on module CPD4707 Supporting the Postgraduate Learner in the Medical Workplace in the 2020-21 academic year:

  • Once you have been offered a place, you will need to apply for a full day’s study leave for the course induction day and each of the contact days. Your first contact day will also be your induction day. Study leave requests will still be necessary for attendance at the online workshop sessions.
  • Where the contact days/online workshops are half-days, trainees are advised to book a full day of study leave as the remaining time is required for independent online study associated with the module coursework.
  • For cohort dates please see the CPD4707 module information page
  • There are two intakes for CPD4707; September 2020 and February 2021.  you were given the opportunity to state which cohort you would prefer within your application. Those who have not specified a preference have been allocated places on a first come, first served basis.  EHU reserves the right to make the final decision about which cohort you are allocated to.
  • This module is a 20-credit Masters-level academic module. The module runs over a 15-week period and is delivered online, so in addition to attending the online workshops, you will be expected to participate throughout the semester in compulsory online reading and discussion board activities and you will be required to complete the module assessments which are due at the end of the semester.

HEE funded places

  • HEE programmes of study are funded via NHS public funds and as such HEE has a responsibility to ensure that these funds are utilised responsibly and effectively. To support this, all those accepting a funded place on modules of the PG Cert must be aware and adhere to the cancellation policy. If cancellation charges are incurred you will personally be liable to pay these, not via your study leave allowance.
