Course summary

Overview

This exciting programme meets the expanding needs of healthcare practitioners. It builds on our reputation for delivering high quality clinically-focused modules. The Clinical Assessment PGCert is suitable for all healthcare practitioners involved in the clinical assessment of patients. The programme offers the knowledge and skills to enable you to assess patients from “head-to-toe” and develop evidence-based management strategies. You’ll develop practical skills in taking health history, auscultation, percussion and palpation in addition to diagnostic reasoning skills. Depending upon your choice of option module you will develop knowledge and skills in the interpretation of blood results or the interpretation of medical images.

Career opportunities

The programme will enable practitioners’ career development by moving towards advanced practice roles. Students who have successfully completed similar modules at the School of Healthcare have gone on to become nurse consultants and advanced and specialist practitioners.

Careers support

We encourage you to prepare for your career from day one. That’s one of the reasons Leeds graduates are so sought after by employers.
