Course content

These courses are for experienced, dynamic health professionals wanting to advance their current roles in practice.

The programme is diverse enough to accommodate professionals from a wide range of backgrounds and specific enough to provide an individualised programme of academic professional development. The courses are applicable to health professionals working in clinical care, management and education.

The courses are part of a flexible programme which allows students to select from over 100 modules (some of which are online), provided by our Schools of Nursing and Midwifery, Health Professions, and Applied Social Sciences, and the Institute of Postgraduate Medicine.

This course is for you if you want to develop and modernise your practice by:
- studying three core modules designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to, develop new roles, enable you to carry out work-based learning projects, and develop your research abilities
- having choice in the modules you select in order to reflect your professional and personal development plans
- networking with other health professions.
