Health Professions Education - Meet the team

Meet your programme team for the MSc Health Professions Education.

Professor Ann Griffin

Deputy Director UCL Medical School, Director of the Research Department of Medical Education, lead for Postgraduate Programmes and Scholarship and Honorary Consultant NHS London

My own experience of balancing the demands of medical practice alongside undertaking formal study in education, in my case up to doctoral level, has a profound impact on how I understand inclusive and flexible pedagogy. The Masters programmes, continuous professional development, and education consultancy are all designed to academically challenge learners, to encourage them to be critical about their practice but be flexible enough to accommodate the multiple demands I know you face. I believe that theory and evidence are as critical to education as they are to medicine, and I know the amazing PGME team will inform and inspire you on your transformative journey to excellence in health professions education. Being head of two award winning departments, for medical education research and postgraduate programmes and scholarships, has been an exceptional opportunity for me contribute to research-led education.

As a Medical Educationalist with a clinical background in General Practice, I am passionate about theory and evidence-informed teaching; critical reading; learning to learn in different settings (physical and virtual); learning and working in inter-disciplinary teams; and continuing professional development - I strongly believe that there is always more to learn and that we learn best with others.
