Postgraduate Medical Education Journal

The Postgraduate Medical Journal is committed to ongoing medical education across the whole range of specialties. Clearly the requirements of clinicians vary within different settings and in different countries. It is this principle that underlies the future planning of the journal and guides the editorial board and reviewers in making their judgements on whether papers submitted to the Postgraduate Medical Journal should be accepted or rejected.

Our policy is to provide a broad mix of articles that will be of educational value to specialists and trainees, and to seek innovative and attractive ways in which to deliver a comprehensive programme of professional development. Our priorities are to:

  • Publish up-to-date guidance on clinical management.
  • Harness the latest technologies to promote access to a full range of educational resources.
  • Continue to develop specialist areas of publication that deal with legal, ethical, ethnic and historical issues that are relevant to clinical medicine.
  • Publish contentious issues that are of educational importance.
  • Ensure that a fair, independent peer review system is in place.
  • Adhere to the highest ethical standards concerning research conduct.

Colour figure charges

During submission you will be asked whether or not you agree to pay for the colour print publication of your colour images. This service is available to any author publishing within this journal for a fee of £250 per article. Authors can elect to publish online in colour and black and white in print, in which case the appropriate selection should be made upon submission.

Article types and word counts

The word count excludes the title page, abstract, tables, acknowledgements and contributions and the references. If you are not a native English speaker and would like assistance with your article there is a professional editing service available.

Where will a 'Postgraduate Certificate in Education' allow you to teach (UK)?

I really know nothing about this, but Birmingham Conservatoire of Music that I want to go to has a 4 year course that I want to take. But, if I take a five year course, there is an integrated PGCE. All I want to know is, where will it allow me to teach? Secondary schools? Or will it allow me to teach in a college? If not, what qualification would I need to teach in a college?
Thanks. (:

Technically a PGCE will allow you to teach any age and any subject regardless of what you train in. However I'd guess that the integrated PGCE will enable you to be a secondary school music teacher. Primary PGCE's enable you to teach all subjects at Primary level. Secondary PGCE's you have to choose a specialist subject (usually the subject of your degree). Further Ed requires a PGCftE. Give the music department a buzz and get them to clarify exactly what PGCE it is.
For further ed take a look at the GTTR ( - it's UCAS but for PGCE's. A quick look shows that Birmingham City University …
