Course content

Gain an in-depth understanding of a patient’s journey from pre-amputation to prosthetic rehabilitation, exploring both the physical and psychological aspects of patient care. This holistic framework is delivered by healthcare experts whose research is at the leading edge of developments in the global field of amputation and prosthetics, and looks at the different views and perspectives of a patient, their families, carers and clinicians. The programme is aimed at multidisciplinary healthcare professionals who either already work, or would like to work, in this area.

The flexible nature of the course means that you may bring credits from other universities. You can also select modules from the Health Sciences portfolio and if you cannot find a module to suit your needs you may choose to study an open module, where in conjunction with an academic coach, you will create your own learning outcomes and module of study.

You will undertake a dissertation which is a substantial piece of work around a topic of your choice. As a student at a Russell Group university you will benefit from research-led learning throughout your study and you will be supported by academics who are recognised experts in their fields.
