Course summary

If you’re a hands-on health professional with a passion for patient care, our progressive Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Practice could give you the opportunity to build on your skills with an entirely clinically-focused curriculum.

Course Details

At the University of Bolton, we take a distinctively different approach to clinical practice, focusing wholly on patient care and dispensing with traditional modules in less relevant areas such as professional development and leadership. Our Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Practice is built around solution-focused problem solving and patient journeys, challenging students to become exceptional thinkers, safe decision-makers and skilled clinicians. You’ll have the opportunity to build your theoretical knowledge and then put your skills into practice safely within our supervised on-site setting.

We’ll cover modules within the areas of human anatomy and physiology, as well as exploring the biological basis and mechanisms of disease. Working with advanced resources such as the Anatomage anatomy table, you’ll have the opportunity to broaden your knowledge of clinical practice and learn to work in ways that aim to improve quality and productivity. Within the Clinical Simulation Suite, meanwhile, you can experience the dynamics of a clinical setting and test your abilities on high-tech, computerised manikins - as well as your classmates!

Career opportunities

This course has been developed for experienced, qualified registered nurses and other health professionals working in primary, secondary and tertiary health care settings, who wish to undertake advanced clinical education at Master's level. It’s designed to develop your knowledge and therapeutic skills, and help you to build a range of transferable employability skills including critical appraisal skills, decision making, problem solving, diagnostics and clinical management skills.
