Program Description:

On Advanced Musculoskeletal Assessment, we offer two pathways – Assessment and Practice; and Imaging. These provide multiple pathways for experienced clinicians, so you can expand your knowledge and skills while assessing and managing patients with a range of musculoskeletal conditions beyond your normal scope of practice. Our optional modules allow you to expand your musculoskeletal practice with a focus on imaging, including ultrasonography, or a focus on patient management, including injection therapy. Teaching contributions are drawn from expertise across our academic departments and many modules are supported by Moodle. Our School of Health and Human Sciences offers a multidisciplinary environment with an excellent reputation for research and teaching. We submitted with our Department of Sociology in the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE, December 2008) and were awarded joint first in the UK. Within our School, our educational provision meets professional regulatory requirements and achieves high standards. We do so by having staff that are multi-professional, including clinically-qualified lecturers, sociologists and social policy and management specialists, so they have clinical and academic credibility. A unique feature of our school is that many of our staff work with local National Health Service (NHS) Trusts and other local agencies, which enhances our grasp of the contemporary links between academic research, the major issues of the day and practice. We specialise in applied, multidisciplinary research that addresses issues of national and international concern to health policy and practice and related fields. We have research interest groups in ‘Developing Professional Practice’ and ‘Applied Health Research’, and host the NIHR Research Design Service for the East of England.
