Course summary

Advanced Clinical Practice (PGCert/MSc/PGDip) at the University of Warwick is designed to increase your employability across various healthcare settings. Warwick Medical School offers immersive teaching and expert guidance as you develop the skills needed to deliver safe and effective care.

Course Overview

Consistent with national guidance, this course will enable non-medical clinicians to undertake full systems examinations, develop the skills and knowledge to clinically and critically interpret results to diagnose patients and prescribe medications for minor ailments. Taught by senior practising clinicians, this course will give you the knowledge you need to further develop your confidence and skill set and prepare to work autonomously at a senior clinical decision-making level. Our flexible course structure allows you to study over a three-year period, starting with the PG Certificate, then progressing to the PG Diploma and finally completing the full MSc.

Teaching and Assessment

This is an interactive programme. You will learn through lectures and seminars, practical group work and guided reading. You will benefit from guided discussions and have the opportunity to practise the skills you have learnt during the sessions.

Assessment for each module can be seen by looking at the relevant module page but typically consists of written essays of 3,000-4,000 words, a portfolio and/or a case based examination. The Professional Project is assessed by 4,000 word project report, an oral presentation and poster presentation.
