Advanced Critical Care Practice (MSc/PGDip/PGCert)

Course Description

This course is primarily aimed at doctors, nurses and paramedics caring for critically ill patients. This course aims to prepare health care professionals to work at a senior clinical decision making level across a number of clinical settings.

The structure of the course will enable the non-medical clinicians to undertake a full systems examination (Child and Adult) and to develop the knowledge and skills to clinically and critically interpret results of tests and investigations. A flexible, modular structure allows you to study over a three years period starting with the PG Certificate in the first year, then progressing to the PG Diploma in the second and then going on to the MSc stage in the third.

Taught by senior practising clinicians and health care professionals, this is an interactive programme where you will learn through seminars, group work and individual study.


MSc - 3 years part time
PG Dip - 2 years part time
PG Cert - 1 year part time

Teaching methods

This is an interactive programme. You will learn through lectures and seminars, practical group work and guided reading. You will benefit from guided discussions and have the opportunity to practice the skills you have learnt during the sessions.
