Advanced Clinical Practice

Overview

Develop your advanced health assessment and professional skills in order for you to work as an autonomous practitioner, providing expert clinical knowledge, complex decision-making skills and clinical competencies in a variety of clinical settings.

Your learning will be client-centred and clinically focused, helping you develop the skills essential for the job of an advanced practitioner working in a primary or secondary care setting, or for any organisation where advanced diagnostic skills are required.

If you study for the postgraduate diploma, you will be required to undertake the listed core modules in order to prepare you for an advanced practitioner role. On successful completion of the postgraduate diploma, you may want to progress on to the masters, where you will be expected to complete an extended study module lasting an additional year. You will explore a topic applicable to your area of practice, refining your expertise and underlining your leadership potential to employers.
