What we do

At Medical Education Leeds we have a number of teams who specialise in delivering a range of educational programmes to healthcare professionals as they progress within their chosen speciality. Our teams, made up of clinicians, educationalists, learning technologists, technicians and dedicated administrators work collaboratively to deliver quality training programmes and bespoke courses - at both an Undergraduate and Postgraduate levels - offering healthcare professionals the opportunity to learn and practice new skills in a safe, simulated environment within our state of art facilities.

Simulation and access to innovative educational technologies provides learners with the opportunity to train in and practice complex procedures in a safe setting, without risk to patients. We use a variety of methods ranging from procedural simulators and manikins to blended eLearning modules and in-situ simulation to reinforce learning processes, improve communication skills and develop team performance.

Collaboration is integral to Medical Education Leeds’ way of working, providing opportunities to learn from the some of the best healthcare professionals in the UK. All of our course and educational resources are devised in consultation with clinicians and trainees within our organisation, helping to shape and develop our training over time.
