Health Studies PG Cert
I am delighted to be able to oversee a raft of exciting master’s programmes within the School of Nursing & Midwifery. I myself have studied at King’s and was attracted to do so because of the College’s reputation for research.
Today the number of programmes has increased to meet the complexity and diversity of healthcare provision, and research has been fully accepted as an essential element of healthcare practice. I am pleased to say that research and the appraisal of evidence remain core to all of our programmes whether concerned with advanced clinical practice and leadership roles or in the field of education for healthcare professionals.
