Continuing professional development modules and short courses

The Health Sciences programme of study supports continuing professional development (CPD) by providing high-quality training and transferable skills, for healthcare and non-healthcare professionals alike, who are interested in:

  • Diabetes
  • Quality and Safety in Healthcare
  • Methods in Applied Health Research
  • SCAN (Schedules for Clinical Assessment in Neuropsychiatry Version 2.1)

We can also work with businesses to design a bespoke course to fit your organisation's needs, or deliver one of our existing courses in-house. If you are interested, please contact us at hsenquiries@le.ac.uk with details of what you require to arrange a consultation.

Our courses

The CPD offerings in Diabetes and Quality and Safety in Healthcare can be accessed individually, without enrolling for a higher award. Students can choose to attend module teaching days only (and gain a statement of completion) or can go on to obtain the credits associated with the module by successfully completing the module assessments. SCAN course participants will receive a statement of completion.
