About Advanced Clinical Practice (GP), MMedSci - at University of Sheffield

This course gives you the knowledge and skills to play an expanded role in providing care for your patients. It is designed to build on the experience you have from working in general practice to become an advanced clinical practitioner in this area. The course can be taken as a standard degree programme or apprenticeship.

You will cover all four pillars of advanced practice: clinical practice, leadership and management, education and research. You will gain advanced skills in anatomy, history taking and clinical examination, develop your understanding of evidence-based practice, learn how to deal with complex clinical situations and improve services, and cover the training necessary to become an independent prescriber.

The programme is designed for working healthcare professionals. It is led by a multidisciplinary team of academics and practitioners who are experienced in supporting mature and distance learners. You will combine your university studies with work-based learning under the supervision of a local mentor.
