Practitioner Training ProgrammesHealthcare Science(Life Sciences)Blood Sciences Cellular SciencesGenetic SciencesInfection Sciences Healthcare Science (Physiological Sciences) Cardiac PhysiologyRespiratory & Sleep Physiology


Models of Provision

  • 3 models proposed

  • Model 1: working in a HCS specialism

    • i.e. within blood sciences specialism of the Life Sciences division

    • trainee associate would undertake a programme based on the first two years of the PTP BSc (Hons), including the work-based assessment and would exit with a FdSc


Models of Provision

  • 3 models proposed

  • Model 2: working across a HCS division

    • work primarily within one specialism within a division, but undertake additional roles from other specialisms within that division.

    • i.e. roles are emerging across cardiac physiology, respiratory physiology and vascular science specialisms.

    • Associate practitioners would complete the FdSc in their primary specialism and undertake additional learning modules and work based training in the additional specialism areas as required.


Models of Provision

  • 3 models proposed

  • Model 3: working across HCS divisions

    • Cross divisional roles across life sciences, physiological sciences and physics and engineering may emerge within community and acute care settings


Models of Provision

  • Programme delivery must be accessible and flexible.

  • Should include part-time taught courses, distance learning and blended learning options.

  • Must carry academic credit to ensure individuals are eligible to progress to the practitioner training programme (PTP).

  • To maximise the scope for career progression, the MSC models for the provision of these programmes are drawn from the PTP curricula.
