Course Content

You’ll benefit from a course designed to incorporate a multidisciplinary perspective, that’s mapped against the Advanced Clinical Practice framework as set out by Health Education England.

You’ll study key modules in clinical leadership and research. Alongside this, your specialist modules will cover areas specific to neurological rehabilitation; from broadening your knowledge relating to functional neuroscience for rehabilitation of movement, through to critically evaluating neuroscientific research in the treatment and management of neurological conditions.


Teaching and Learning

You’ll benefit from the expertise of award-winning academic staff who have extensive experience as clinicians and researchers. Almost all members of our teaching team are either currently working in the NHS or have had substantial clinical careers in various neurological specialities. They are active in research and often contribute to the development of national clinical guidelines, so you know you’re being taught by practising healthcare professionals with a high profile in the sector.

Our teaching approaches are diverse and you’ll benefit from a blend of online and face-to-face teaching. There’ll be lab workshops, pieces of small group work, debates, presentations and online discussion. Sharing knowledge and experience is encouraged as part of the programme so you’ll also benefit from extensive critical engagement with your peers.



Advanced Clinical Leadership

This module aims to develop advanced knowledge, skills, qualities and behaviours of leadership for clinical healthcare professionals working in a range of roles in healthcare settings in the NHS. This knowledge and skills literacy will nurture and enhance existing team-working skills and clinical leadership requirements in order to evidence advanced level skills.

Qualitative Research in Health and Social Care

This module aims to critically explore, reflect upon and develop qualitative research skills and knowledge in health, and to explore qualitative approaches in research in the context of their philosophical, societal, and cultural underpinnings.

Quantitative Methods and Design for Health Science Research

This module aims to critically explore, reflect and develop understanding of statistical approaches to the analysis of quantitative data in health science research, and to gain practical skills in analysing key research designs using standard statistical software package appropriate to biomedical and health research.


The dissertation aims for students to learn about research by working with an academic supervisor on a topic relevant to their clinical specialist practice, to demonstrate their ability to integrate conceptual and theoretical issues within their clinical specialist practice or discipline, and to learn how to design and conduct an original piece of research in an area relevant to their clinical specialist practice or discipline.


On this course you’ll have learnt to analyse complex information, manage uncertainty, deal with abstract concepts and use critical reflective practice. These are all skills that will advance your career within the health and social care environment. You’ll have acquired the expertise to improve the lives of people with disease, trauma or disorders of the nervous system in a multi-disciplinary and holistic way.

This programme is ideal for clinicians with one or more years of experience, clinical leads, managers and research academics who are looking to develop and improve their expertise in neurology and rehabilitation.
