Key Features 

Diploma MSc is a collaborative partner of the University of South Wales and on successful completion of this course, you will receive a Postgraduate Diploma in Acute Medicine (Online) .

Acute medicine is a rapidly evolving specialty that functions as the bedrock of hospital-based medicine and emergency care. Since many registered healthcare professionals are exposed to acute medicine within their daily work routines, there is an increasing demand for tailored postgraduate education. Our course caters for this demand, enabling you to develop a systematic understanding of evidence-based, protocol-delivered practice that is pivotal in optimising acute care.

Unlike a practical course in acute medicine, our theoretical course aims to enhance the existing knowledge of healthcare professionals. These can be implemented when addressing complex issues in patient management, directly benefiting patient care.
