MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice is approved and supported through Health Education England working across the West Midlands and the West Midlands Universities Advanced Practice Group.
You will be provided with an introduction to all aspects of Advanced Clinical Practice, in relation to your current field of work so that you are able to work at an advanced level of practice. It is essential therefore that you have the full support of your organisation to be able to practice at an advanced level both during (including supervised / supernumerary clinical learning time) and following completion of the programme.
Our Master’s course is split into three years – the first year will see you study and undertake the skills practice aspects of our allied Postgraduate Certificate in Advanced Health Assessment and Clinical Decision Making. The second year requires study for the Postgraduate Diploma in Advancing Clinical Practice and in the third year, you will undertake a dissertation for the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice award.
Registered professionals, whose Professional / Statutory regulatory bodies approve prescribing awards, will be expected to complete the independent and supplementary prescribing qualification as part of the MSc, if not previously completed. Throughout the course you will relate the content of each module to your own speciality, whether you are a nurse, midwife or AHP.
Advanced clinical practitioners can move into a range of different fields within the health care sector, specialising in a number of areas. The assessment, clinical decision-making and differential diagnostic skills you’ll hone here will enable you to progress into roles as health care professionals, practising holistically in partnership with patients and their families. This Advanced Clinical Practice MSc course is offered by Birmingham City University.
