What are masterclasses?


For specialist disciplines

Earn 6 hours CPD

These full-day doctor-led risk management masterclasses feature an engaging and powerful programme. With sessions covering content from our popular workshops, “Mastering your risk”, “Mastering adverse outcomes” and “Mastering consent and shared decision making” to help reduce your risk before and after a complaint, and communicate more effectively. You also earn 6 hours of CPD.

Expect a mix of short presentations, opportunities for valuable peer-to-peer discussions, and personal reflection.

Peer learning occurs through reflective exercises, sharing experience and knowledge, along with the invaluable opportunity to get involved and participate with skilled actors putting your learning into practice in a safe environment.

You can attend a masterclass in person and learn alongside other experts in your specialty at carefully chosen venues nationwide.

How to access our masterclasses

To browse, find, and book a masterclass that you’re interested in, you just need to log in to our online learning hub or activate your account if you haven’t already.

Your frequently asked questions

I can't get to the venue until after the masterclass has started. Can I still have my CPD points?

If you believe that you’re going to be late, we’d recommend that you register on another date. The introduction to each session is important for the messages later. Most colleges require proof from us that you’ve attended the complete masterclass and may take into consideration any discrepancies between attendance-register records and time claimed.

Can I just turn up to attend a masterclass on the day?

All masterclass places are limited and it’s not possible for the masterclass presenters to cater for members who do not book a place in advance.

I can't attend a masterclass. Can you send me the course materials instead or make them available online?

The course materials are only an addition to the masterclass and not a replacement for it. They don’t contain the videos, exercises or speaker’s notes that are vital parts of the masterclass. This means the course materials are only for those who attend and can’t be sent out or made available online.

Why am I unable to book a place on a masterclass?

Our masterclasses are extremely popular, and with limited spaces available they can book out within a very short time. Members are encouraged to log in to our online learning hub regularly to see what professional development courses are available and secure their place on any of interest.

If I cancel my attendance at a masterclass, will I be penalised?

If you give us notice or if an emergency arises (either private or patient) we won’t charge you. However, we do reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee to attendees who don’t contact us about their inability to attend (before or after the event), particularly if this happens on more than one occasion.

Is there a charge for car parking when attending a masterclass?

Medical Protection won’t charge you for parking. However, the venue where the masterclass is being held may charge a fee to use their car park (if available). This is at the discretion of the venue, so we advise you to check before you travel.

Do you reimburse travel expenses?

We don’t, because we believe that most members would agree that the reimbursement of other members’ travel expenses isn’t a good way to use their funds.

Do I get a reduced subscription rate if I participate in a masterclass?

Not at present. Our range of doctor-led professional development training (included in your membership) is designed to reduce your risk, better protect your career, and improve patient outcomes.
