Course summary

Clinical Practice is the practice that involves autonomy and decision-making, carried out by highly-experienced registered health practitioners. It is underpinned by Health Education England’s four pillars: clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research. Our innovative portfolio of multi-professional Advanced Clinical Practice (ACP) programmes are aimed at experienced healthcare practitioners from diverse professional backgrounds who wish to expand their role and advance their level of practice towards Advanced Clinical Practitioner status. They are best suited to practitioners whose employer has agreed to support their development to ACP level in a specified role. As well as the MSc and PgDip, this course is also available as a Master’s-level apprenticeship. Four different pathways are available: Generic, Critical Care, Musculoskeletal or Urgent and Emergency Care. The degree title you are awarded will depend on your pathway. These pathways are normally taken part-time, over 2 years for the PgDip and 3 years for the MSc. You will attend St George’s 1 or 2 days per week during module weeks, with additional self-directed study time managed by you and negotiated with your employer, where required (eg for project work or supervised practice). Our courses meet all the requirements set out within Health Education England’s Multi-professional Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice in England (HEE, 2017) and the Integrated Degree Apprenticeship Standard (ST0564).
