Course content

If you’re interested in continuing your professional development across a range of subject areas, then an MSc APP in Clinical Sciences is the answer for you. Designed to allow busy professionals a clear pathway to postgraduate masters, this course will reinvigorate clinical practice and challenge you to develop yourself with reflective, autonomous practice at a higher level.

Learn research methods, evidence-based practice and analytical skills without having to leave your clinic. Develop self-direction, experiential learning and reflective practice while you work and use what you learn every day to make a difference to your career, likely leading to changes in how you run your practice, brought about by considered academic and reflective processes to benefit both you and your patients.
