Postgraduate Diploma in Acute Medicine (Online Delivery) PG Dip

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.

Entry Requirements For This Course

To secure your place on the course, applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a relevant professional healthcare field, such as a medical or nursing degree. Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite clinical and professional knowledge.

English Language Requirements

Proficiency in the English Language is also essential to completing our courses. If English is NOT your first language, we ask for proof of competency during the application process. We are able to accept an IELTS overall score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 for each band) or an equivalent qualification.
