Welcome to MSc Advanced Clinical Practice and Apprenticeship route 2022.

Welcome to the MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) and MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP) apprenticeship. This programme will develop and equip healthcare professionals with the key skills, knowledge and behaviours needed to independently manage defined episodes of clinical care whilst demonstrating expertise within their scope of practice. It is linked to the four pillars of ACP (clinical, education, leadership and research) and aims to enhance service delivery and improve patient health outcomes.

This programme is accredited by the Centre of Advancing Practice.
