Course summary

About the course

Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs) are a relatively new career pathway in heath provision. Trainee ACPs can be from a variety of multi-professional backgrounds bringing with them a wealth of clinical experience. ACPs are part of Government plans to modernise and transform the health service and will help to meet ongoing changes and challenges of the NHS, including increasing service provision to meet the needs of patients in a variety of clinical settings. Advanced practice in all fields requires expert clinical, leadership and education skills underpinned by high quality research and evidence base to support practice developments. The course challenges the depth and breadth of your knowledge and supports you to demonstrate a high level of practice so you can function at the leading edge of advanced practice. Podiatric surgery is a specialist area of advanced clinical practice for podiatrists.

The Master of Podiatry Surgery (ACP) apprenticeship course provides the opportunity for experienced registered Podiatrists to gain 180 FHEQ level 7 credits while undertaking their podiatric surgery training. It is designed to provide those who are working as ACP apprentices, with an opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, behaviours and values required to meet the Institute for Apprenticeships Advanced Clinical Practice Standard and for an Advanced Clinical Practitioner role as part of the health and social care workforce.

  • This course is the first in England to lead to eligibility to apply for annotation by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a podiatrist practising podiatric surgery.
  • It offers those who have already studied the Theory of Podiatric Surgery MSc an opportunity to enhance their skills and knowledge allowing them to practise in this specialist area.
  • The course incorporates the College of Podiatry fellowship training programme.
  • It is supported by tutors from the College of Podiatry faculty of podiatric surgery.
  • It contains a large placement element consisting of 600 hours per year, providing you with an opportunity to experience real-world scenarios prior to qualifying.
  • You will be taught by academics who are all practising clinicians within podiatric practice.

Through utilising up-to date research evidence, policy documents and a wide range of clinical experience, you will be assisted to further update and develop your clinical practice.
