About the course

This programme has been developed to meet the changing skill-mix required in the primary care workforce. The programme is informed by recent work to clarify professional career pathway stages and competencies for advanced practice in primary care. 

The programme covers core competencies relating to advanced practice including: direct clinical competence as a generalist, leadership and collaborative practice, improving quality and developing practice, and developing self and others.

The programme aims to develop expert generalists who are able to provide accessible, first contact preventive care, and diagnosis and management of acute and long term conditions.

It produces practitioners who are able to work well within a skill-mix team to develop a responsive and effective person-centred primary care. The programme facilitates the development of a portfolio of competencies across clinical areas.

The world needs health professionals

And we’re dedicated to educating them. We have strong links with other health departments at the University, including the School for Health and Related Research (ScHARR), the Department of Sociological Studies, the Medical School and the Centre for the Study of Childhood and Youth.

The school is close to the central University campus, opposite the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. You’ll be at the heart of student life with West Street, Broomhill and the best students’ union in the country on your doorstep.
