This course is for health care professionals who develop services or support the advancement of others. It's relevant to various advanced clinical or managerial roles.

We teach you the skills to meet everyday challenges. You'll develop an in-depth understanding of issues relating to advancing clinical practice. You set personal learning objectives and achieve them through a dissertation, which will enhance your knowledge base and clinical skills.


You'll be taught entirely by online distance learning with no need to attend in person. We expect you to contribute regularly to online discussion groups.


Your submitted work is assessed throughout the course (a 3,000-word assignment for each taught unit), and youll get feedback from your tutor. You'll also write a dissertation or an extended workplace study.
