WELCOME MESSAGE

Welcome to the Fellowship Programme in Clinical Transplantation. This fellowship programme, a unique, flagship programme, is offered wholly online. We are very pleased you have chosen to start the next stage of your education with us, with a massive investment to improve our resources for all our students and to recruit appropriately qualified national and international clinicians to inform and deliver our curriculum, to ensure that all we deliver is current, evidence-based and research connected.

This wholly online programme will establish your peer support/learning via the online discussion group and journal club. You will learn things from us as well as from each other. Most importantly, you will also discover things for yourself.

Student-led teaching.

Reflective practice on the national and international guidelines.

Real-life clinical scenarios.

Group discussion of complex cases.

Critical appraisal of scientific papers.

Critical appraisal of the available evidence with reflection on the local practice.

MCQs with answers and explanations.

Facilitated online discussion boards.

OBJECTIVES

This programme is offered wholly online study using an interactive electronic platform, which produces a high-quality interface for learning and teaching through keynote lectures, a multitude of interactive discussion boards and a series of parallel journal clubs.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The program is delivered by experienced transplant clinicians from various reputable national and international transplant centers to enhance the exposure of the candidates to different clinical experience and practice. The education is delivered in the form of online lectures, case-based discussions, critical appraisal of scientific papers and problem-solving exercises. Clinical scenarios and real-life practical experience are discussed online (asynchronous) by senior transplant clinicians. The lectures are delivered in an asynchronous approach to overcome the challenges posed by time zone difference and maximize mutual and reciprocal engagement. An optional tele-education is introduced in each module synchronously to enhance the learning experience and encourage engagement of the students. These synchronous interactive sessions will be recorded and posted to all students.

 

ELIGIBILITY

While the lovely valley teems with your around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable. Throw myself down among the tall grass by the close earth.

Academic Integrity Policy and Academic Writing

The Fellowship Program is committed to deliver a high standard of education in clinical transplantation and protects the value of its awards. Therefore, all students are taught a compulsory short module by experienced members of the scientific committee on the principles of evidence-based medicine, presentation skills, academic integrity, plagiarism, the principles of academic writing and how academic misconduct can affect the integrity of science. The tutorial is supported by practical exercises to ensure the understanding of these important academic principles.
