Course summary

Suitable for a broad range of healthcare practitioners, the Professional Doctorate in Health (DProf) is an exciting initiative, and will provide you with a high level, vocationally focused award. It’s ideal for nurses, medical/paramedical practitioners, allied health professionals, midwives and health care educators.

Offering an equivalent to PhD level, the DProf provides an opportunity for you to complete an advanced programme of study, focused on your individual needs. The programme builds upon an existing suite of awards for the professional education of practitioners.

The doctorate uses a range of master’s modules for Stage 1. Stage 2 comprises the doctoral research at Level 8 taking you through to your final thesis.

Why study with us

  • The two-stage structure (MSc/DProf ) means that you can progressively develop your research in practice part-time culminating in doctoral research.
  • The Programme Team comprises a highly experienced research active team of staff and you will be supervised by a member of staff with a PhD or professional doctoral background.
  • The Professional Doctorate in Health is about developing your professional self and your ability to lead and contribute to the development of work and research.
