Advanced Clinical Practice (PGCert/MSc/PGDip) at the University of Warwick is designed to increase your employability across various healthcare settings. Warwick Medical School offers immersive teaching and expert guidance as you develop the skills needed to deliver safe and effective care. Consistent with national guidance, this course will enable non-medical clinicians to undertake full systems examinations, develop the skills and knowledge to clinically and critically interpret results to diagnose patients and prescribe medications for minor ailments. Taught by senior practising clinicians, this course will give you the knowledge you need to further develop your confidence and skill set and prepare to work autonomously at a senior clinical decision-making level. Our flexible course structure allows you to study over a three-year period, starting with the PG Certificate, then progressing to the PG Diploma and finally completing the full MSc.
