Medical ethics and law

The aim of training is to provide practitioners with the ability to effectively deal with ethically challenging situations they may face in their clinical practice.

Individual and small group training is offered for healthcare professionals in medical ethics and law. Typically the process begins with a discussion of learners’ needs which enables the negotiation of aims and learning outcomes prior to the commencement of training. Training focuses on developing:

  • Understanding of relevant law and professional guidance.
  • Ethical reasoning skills.
  • Understanding the influences of the social, practical and hierarchical environment on ethical behaviour.
  • Communication and negotiation skills.

Quality management and enhancement

Training and advice on quality management of medical education is offered by our experienced quality management team. This focuses on ensuring that high standards within teaching and learning processes for medical programmes are recognised and rewarded, and problems can be identified and addressed.

Widening participation

Target Medicine is UCLMS’s flagship widening participation project. It is designed to inspire students from non-selective state schools through their application to medicine. Quality is maintained via support, supervision and training from highly experienced teaching staff.

Target Medicine comprises a year-long Mentoring Scheme, providing practical guidance and support for sixth-formers during the process of applying to medical school; an Outreach Team, inspiring primary and secondary students; and a weeklong Summer School (TMSS), building Year 11 students’ confidence.

The Target Medicine Academic Leads provide consultancy and training on how to set up, develop and sustain a widening participation project of this kind. This includes guidance on how to adapt the “Target” model to suit the requirements of individual medical schools and other professions or higher education courses.
