About the Course
Our Emergency Medicine programme offers professional development and an academic qualification for nurses and physicians in emergency contexts. Three distinct study routes are available and all have been designed entirely by physicians and nurses experienced in emergency care. Teaching is online and based around a virtual hospital with problem-based learning and online discussions with colleagues and fellow students.
The course is made up of two phases. Phase One provides a range of core and elective units from which students can select their personalised route. Phase Two consists of a substantial practitioner project in a chosen field of emergency medicine.
The units depend on the route you wish to follow and the elective units chosen build on this to explore particular interests. Units are offered on a rolling programme so over the course of your study, almost all units are likely to be available. Students are able to choose to study to Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma level or to continue their studies to achieve a Masters level qualification.
