This programme has been designed to provide postgraduate training and education for current healthcare professionals, or those aspiring to work in this rapidly evolving field.
Studying this course at Hull, you’ll benefit from strong links with a number of community and health settings, providing excellent opportunities for work placements to apply your skills in real-world settings.
