Months of entry
The MSc Advanced Clinical Practice offers registered practitioners a flexible, bespoke and student-centred programme of study that aims to meet their personal and professional development needs as they progress within their role towards advanced expert practice.
The Master of Science Award at the University of Lincoln is underpinned by the four framework pillars of advanced clinical practice as outlined by Health Education East Midlands (HEEM); Clinical Skills, Management and Leadership, Education and Research.
It is fundamental to this programme that each bespoke student pathway will contain a minimum level of each pillar in order to be deemed competent, however the individual route-way the practitioner takes will be determined by their own clinical practice role.
Within the award the ‘Clinical Skills’ pillar will always be the most prominent and each combination of modules aims to continuously promote the core principles of Advanced Clinical Practice as defined by HEEM; Autonomous practice, critical thinking, high levels of decision making and problem solving, values based care and improving practice.
