I finally received my Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) certificate! This is my first postgraduate qualification after I got my Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) last year. Unlike the previous years, the NUMed Teaching Fellows this year are not offered the Postgraduate Certificate in Medical Education (PGCertMedEd) qualification because of the Covid-19 pandemic. No doubt, I was feeling a bit disappointed about that. Thankfully though, we have the opportunity to get the AFHEA, which is an acceptable alternative to the PGCertMedEd. AFHEA is just the beginning, I am now working towards the next step which is Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).
