MSc Advanced Emergency Care
Why choose this masters course?
The MSc in Advanced Emergency Care builds on ScHARR's international reputation for research in the field of pre-hospital and emergency care. Much of the teaching is delivered by members of the EMRiS research group, the foremost emergency medicine research group in the UK.
The course will provide students with an opportunity to develop both their clinical and non-clinical skills in emergency medicine.
The course will appeal to both senior trainees and career grade doctors in emergency medicine as well as experienced staff from other backgrounds.
To meet the needs of overseas students who may not have previously worked in a UK emergency medicine department, the 'Introduction to UK Emergency Medicine' module has been developed. This includes a clinical attachment to an emergency department affiliated to ScHARR.
Begin studying in September or February
Part-time students can begin studying at the start of Semester 1 (September) or Semester 2 (February).
How is the programme delivered?
The course has been designed to be as flexible as possible, allowing students to successfully combine their studies with work and family life.
It can be studied full-time over a period of one year or part-time over a period of up to five years.
The majority of the modules are to be delivered by distance learning. Some of these are supplemented by taught days in Sheffield. Further details can be found on the Course Structure or individual module pages.
