Months of entry
This course is for experienced, registered health and care practitioners delivering advanced clinical practice, who wish to learn advanced skills in the management of episodes of care for their client group. It can be studied either as a standard masters degree or via an apprenticeship route.
The course encompasses the four pillars of advanced practice: clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research. On successful completion of the programme, you’ll demonstrate the core advanced practice capabilities and general practice clinical competence. The course includes a clinical leadership module, which ensures that service design, delivery and patient safety remain at the forefront of your clinical working.
This whole programme of development relies on work-based assessment and learning to consolidate the taught content. Because of this, all students on the programme need to complete an e-portfolio of knowledge, skills and capabilities and will need a mentor and supervisor in practice, normally a GP who is able to support and assess you throughout the three year period.
The programme content is delivered by a range of expert practitioners and experienced academics. A dynamic combination of underpinning knowledge and supervised clinical practice will ensure that you have the capabilities to work as an Advanced Clinical Practitioner on successful completion of the programme.
