Course summary

Why Study this Programme?

Whether you practise medicine in a rural setting or have remote access to additional or secondary medical services in an urban setting, this programme will give GPs and other healthcare professionals the confidence and skills to deal with urgent and pre-hospital care which are paramount.

People who train with us need to be able to deal with whatever they encounter. From the better-known primary care conditions, through to life-saving interventions in hostile environments, every step should enhance the care and the outcome. Most importantly they need to understand that we need to enhance care in the remote setting not delay it. It is all very good being able to diagnose sepsis in the community but unless you can treat it, all you’ve done is delay the care and increase the mortality.

These programmes offer you the chance to explore advances in the use of technology and digital health which may allow access to the skills of another provider in a different location when required.

Opportunities

You may wish to learn more about the practice of rural and urgent medicine either in a constant base or as part of a medical team supporting other pursuits such as mountain medicine, expedition medicine, medicine relating to extreme sports, or pre-hospital emergency care.

Although short courses in remote and rural care are available, these programmes give you the opportunity to gain skills and work towards a university accredited award.

The suite of courses can provide the ideal opportunity to develop and enhance your portfolio career. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
