The online Diploma in Acute Medicine gives you the opportunity to help shape the future of this rapidly evolving multi-disciplinary specialty. There's an increasing demand for consultants in acute medicine so job prospects are excellent.
Run in partnership with Diploma MSc, this is a theoretical course that aims to supplement the education of existing healthcare professionals, as opposed to a practical course in acute medicine. You will develop a systematic understanding of evidence-based, protocol-delivered practice, which is crucial in optimising acute care.
You will also learn how to use relevant methodologies and approaches to address complex issues of patient management across the spectrum of medical specialties that comprise acute medicine, and the ability to critically evaluate evidence and implement best practice in complex scenarios.
