Advanced Musculoskeletal Assessment and Practice (Hand Therapy) (Taught)

Course summary

We understand that you may not have the time to do a full-time degree, so our CPD pathways allow you to study flexibly, in the way that best suits you. The structure, mode of delivery and level of support allow you to progress towards a qualification at postgraduate certificate level. This pathway enables clinicians who have specialised in hand therapy to advance their practice. Students will engage in material related to clinical decision making, clinical service quality improvement strategies, and advanced clinical skills such as injection therapy. There is flexibility within this pathway for students to direct heir learning to topics of personal interest. We:

  • Provide you with a critical understanding of the key concepts underlying advanced musculoskeletal clinical skills beyond your normal professional scope of practice.
  • Provide you with the opportunity to acquire advanced musculoskeletal clinical skills beyond your own evidence-based practice.
  • Ensure you acquire a range of transferable employment-related skills.
This course sits within our School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences. This provides an exciting opportunity to join a community specifically focused on sports and exercise science, sports therapy and physiotherapy. This will allow us to bring together our internationally recognised research, share knowledge, and enhance placement and vocational opportunities for our students and graduates.
