Advanced Clinical Practice, MSc

Course Introduction

Develop your skills and deepen your knowledge of advanced health clinical practice with this tailored Master's course. Our MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice is designed for current practitioners who are registered with a professional body and who would like to become advanced clinical practitioners.

Your studies are based around four pillars: clinical practice, leadership and management, education, and research. This will help you develop specialist knowledge and work autonomously to make decisions in complex situations.

<u>

Careers and placements</u>

Will I have a work placement?

You will be required to be working in clinical practice for a minimum of 20 hours a week. Part of this should constitute your work-based learning which will be in your area of practice organised by you and your employer.

How long is my placement?

You will need to demonstrate work-based learning throughout the three years of the programme.

<u>

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?</u>

Graduates of this course will be equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills and expertise to provide clinical leadership. You'll be adaptable and flexible in your approach to your role, and able to provide support, education and supervision to less-experienced colleagues. You will also have opportunities for career progression through promotion and/or service recognition schemes.

While there is no universally recognised definition, the NHS Career Framework equates advanced practice to Agenda for Change Level 7. We also aim for this to be offered as an apprenticeship (MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner, Degree Apprenticeship) in September 2019.
