Course delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. The injection course runs over five taught days.

The musculoskeletal (MSK) route includes one online day and four campus days (20% online, 80% campus). For the neuro route all five days are on campus (100% on campus).

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.

However, it’s considered to be good practice by the relevant regulatory bodies to have a formal qualification such as this. You’ll be able to demonstrate good theoretical knowledge, practical skill and the ability to consider best practice through evaluation of the evidence base for injection therapy practice.
