We are proud to train future doctors and physician associates. We also prepare students for other healthcare careers. And, we develop the skills and knowledge of qualified professionals in the sector.

Our postgraduate and CPD provision includes courses in:

  • Medical Education and Leadership
  • Performance and Rehabilitation
  • Urgent and Rural Medicine
  • Research
  • Physician Associate Practice

Many courses allow you to convert previous CPD study into academic credits towards a postgraduate award. You can study full or part-time either online or by blended learning. Some programmes use CPD blocks so you can learn alongside your professional role.

We also provide the opportunity for you to study individual modules rather than a full postgraduate course.

The programme fits around my life and interests. I work full-time, and I wanted to do my Prof Doc full-time as well. I want to use the knowledge to further support the Health and Social Care sector.
