guys-extrerior

With over 29,000 staff and 24,000 students, King’s Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centres is one of the largest centres of healthcare education and training in Europe. Its partner organisations are King’s College London and Guy’s and St Thomas’, King’s College Hospital, and South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trusts.

The Learning Hub is an online collection of education and training resources that have been created by and for our staff, students and trainees. Registered users can access learning materials covering a range of healthcare disciplines, for example children’s health, pharmacy or cancer.

Learning materials range from bite-sized self-paced resources to improve specific skills or raise awareness of key issues, to more structured modules for continuing professional development. You can browse through the materials in the ‘Learning Materials’ pages, where they are categorised into 21 areas that reflect the specialties and services within the different Clinical Academic Groups (CAGs) of King’s Health Partners. The additional ‘Cross Cutting Themes’ category contains learning materials that apply to all CAGs.

We welcome suggestions for improvement so that the Learning Hub can grow and develop. If you want to create and add new learning materials for the Learning Hub website, please send an email to khplearninghub@kcl.ac.uk
