The Master of Science in Professional Health Practice is a multi-professional programme of study which is not only aimed at practitioners aspiring to develop and work at an advanced level of practice but is also tailored for those individuals who are already working at an advanced level within their area of practice. The programme will equip prospective candidates with the knowledge, skills and professional behaviours (values and attitudes) to work at an advanced clinical level, exercise autonomy and decision-making in the context of complexity, uncertainty and varying levels of risk and holding accountability for the decisions that they are required to make. Prospective students are envisaged to come from a range of regulated healthcare professions such as nursing, pharmacy, therapeutic or diagnostic radiography, physiotherapy, paramedics and occupational therapy, and who work in a variety of specialties, settings or sectors. They will have the opportunity to study in an interdisciplinary environment which will provide a more holistic approach to their clinical skills.Fees:Fees apply – Further information through MG2i (MCAST Gateway to Industry)
