PRiME: Professionals in Medical Education


PRiME is a programme of activity designed to support staff development and promote excellent teaching on The University of Manchester MB ChB medicine degree.


Our MB ChB has more than 4,000 colleagues in the University and NHS partner organisations delivering teaching to more than 2,000 medical students across six years of the curriculum.

Our tutors and supervisors are essential to supporting high quality learning, and we are committed to investing in their development.

We invite anyone teaching on the MB ChB to attend PRiME training and development activities, free of charge. This activity  is important for GMC appraisal, revalidation requirements and CPD, with our PRiME Advanced workshops having CPD approved by RCP.


2023-2024 Update

Most of our training and development activity takes place on Zoom, although there are a few workshops which take place Face-to-Face. Please check your booking details carefully. Most courses are within the hours of 9-5pm although we try to offer flexible times in addition to these core hours where possible.
