A personal development, resilience and leadership course run for GPs by GPs. 

PED is aimed at GPs in the Health Education England North West (HEENW) area who have a regular (non-locum) position at a practice be it as a partner or salaried.  

The course is based around group work, with some individual work between sessions. Groups are carefully selected so that you will be with GPs of comparable experience. It is particularly useful for those who have a leadership or educational role or are interesting in developing those areas. Whether you have two- or twenty-years’ experience in general practice, we have something to offer. 

PED is spread over two years with three three-day residential modules in the Lake District and three study days in Manchester.  

 The tutors are practising GPs with an interest in education and the course is supported with an e-learning site and a handbook. Written work is around personal education planning, practice development planning and critical incident analysis. 

Successful completion of the PED course and the academic assignments now earns a full Postgraduate Certificate award from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). There is also, a variety of additional modules allowing flexible progression to a Post graduate Diploma or a MSc. These include the optional leadership module that is linked to PED.
