MSc Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) Course Structure Selector

acpman

Here you can review the course structure for ACP and register module choices for your chosen course of study.

Our ACP course provides the theoretical underpinning and practice base to enable health care professionals to deliver safe, effective and successful autonomous care. The 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 three years part-time, starting with the Post Graduate Certificate in the first year, progressing to the Post Graduate Diploma in the second and then going on to the MSc stage in the third.

The whole MSc will total 180 CATS, made up of 60 CATS for the Certicate stage, 120 CATS for the Diploma and 180 CATS for the full MSc. All of the required modules in each year must be taken before a student is allowed to progress to the next year of study.

Please review the module structure for each year of the MSc, and when you have done so, register the modules that you wish to take for each constituent part of the MSc by using the links below.
