Course content

This multi-professional, flexible programme of learning is designed for clinicians practising in areas where major trauma care is provided; from pre-hospital care, through acute hospital care to acute rehabilitation. It is also aimed at those who are seeking to prevent injury.

The course is clinician led by experts who have been involved in the system wide reorganisation of UK trauma care practice over recent years. Clinical application can be made both nationally and internationally across a spectrum of settings where care for the seriously injured is provided. You also have the opportunity to access clinical practice as an observer within a collaborative inter-professional learning community where you will be supported and facilitated by clinical experts.

You can complete the programme at your own pace through selection of individual modules. These can be built into either Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Masters level qualifications. For more information please see our website.
