Medics.Academy and the School of Medicine at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) have joined to offer an accredited, masters-level programme. The programme is offered as a certification (60 credits) currently and will be offered as a diploma (120 credits) and MSc (180 credits) in the coming years. The programme leads to postgraduate qualifications in Clinical Practice, Management and Education. 

All programme modules will be offered through the Medics.Academy platform directly with the accreditation coming from UCLan.

The following modules are the first three modules that have been developed for commencement. More module options will be developed over time to obtain the other award levels.
