Course content

Imagine being able to cut patient waiting times in your hospital, or being able to put the knowledge you’ve built up over your career to more effective use. How much more could you achieve in your day if you were able to diagnose your patients and prescribe medications for minor ailments with confidence?

As an Advanced Clinical Practitioner this hope can become more of a reality. Our courses can help you build on your training, skills and experiences with the knowledge and expertise of our clinicians to aid you to give your patients the very best care.

This course is designed to increase your employability across a range of healthcare settings.

Providing the theoretical underpinning and practice base to enable health care professionals to deliver safe and effective autonomous care, this course will prepare you to work at a senior clinical decision making level.

Consistent with national guidance, this structured professional development will enable non-medical clinicians to undertake a full systems examination (child and adult) and to develop the knowledge and skills to clinically and critically interpret results of tests and investigations.

A flexible, modular structure allows you to study over a three year period starting with the PG Certificate, then progressing to the PG Diploma and then going on to the full MSc. Taught by senior practising clinicians and health care professionals, this is an interactive programme where you will learn through seminars, group work and individual study.
