Post-graduate certificate in ophthalmic practice with UCL
Applications are now open for a new post-graduate certificate in ophthalmic practice for nurses and allied health professionals. This new qualification is the first blended learning postgraduate programme in the UK to be designed for nurses and allied health professionals working in the specialised field of ophthalmology. Developed by two global centres of expertise, education and research, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL, this collaboration ensures that students have access to experts in their fields.
The emphasis of the programme will be on relating empirical knowledge to clinical practice and care, whilst developing more analytical and research-based skills. The inclusion of a work-based module, relating clinical care to practice, ensures that the knowledge base is related to experience of clinical conditions in the workplace and that graduates will be able to deliver first-class patient care.
This programme aims to bridge the gap between theory and practical skills for those working in ophthalmic practice. It provides an opportunity for UK and EU nurses and professionals allied to medicine, who are working in ophthalmic care, to enhance their understanding of the knowledge base and empirical research that underpins clinical conditions and develop practical skills within their own clinical area.
Students will have access to the foremost ophthalmic library in Europe, both in person and remotely. There will be networking opportunities for online group discussions and web-based discussion forums around the modules being taken.
