Months of entry
Acute medicine is a rapidly evolving specialty, and with many generalist healthcare professionals undertaking acute medicine as part of their daily routines, the MSc in Acute Medicine answers the demand for further tailored education.
A distinctive aspect of our online MSc Acute Medicine course is that it allows healthcare professionals to study at postgraduate level without release from work. With no lectures or webinars at set times, students can fit their studies flexibly around their personal and professional commitments.
The primary aims of the course are to equip students with a systematic understanding of acute medicine, skills in critical appraisal and application of knowledge for direct patient benefit. In addition to this, students will benefit from being taught life-long learning and advanced problem-solving skills that they can apply to clinical practice in acute medicine. This course is offered with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc.
