About the course
You’ll learn how to support individuals to help themselves to better health and wellbeing. Most importantly, you will be equipped to use leading-edge science and to contribute to improving health services for individual users. You won’t just be learning in the classroom, but undertaking placements in the NHS and other healthcare organisations, seeing and learning first-hand about supporting those with a variety of healthcare needs.
This course has been developed because there is a recognised need for a new type of health science practitioner focused on health and wellbeing, to undertake a role perhaps best described as a digital Healthcare Scientist. With four fusion sciences* interwoven throughout the programme, this course will give you a breadth of scientific training including high-level consultation skills; a holistic, evidence- and values-based approach to shared decision making; and clinical physiology. You will also develop the knowledge and skills to work with the digital technologies that play an ever-increasing role in supporting health and wellbeing. The course is Accredited by the National School of Healthcare Science as part of Health Education England, and completion of the programme confers eligibility to apply to the Academy for Healthcare Science for registration.
The four fusion sciences:
1. Behavioural Science
2. Healthcare and Physiological sciences
3. Science of Digital Healthcare
4. Science of Shared Clinical Decision-making
