Healthcare practice

Awarded by St George’s, University of London

Interprofessional learning is at the heart of healthcare practice education for working professionals at Kingston and St George’s. We continually strive to connect health and social care professionals with one another, and foster a deeper understanding of each other’s practice to improve the care of patients and service users.

Central to fostering an interprofessional approach to education is our unique portfolio of healthcare practice qualifications. We understand the busy lifestyles health and social care practitioners lead, therefore most of our specific healthcare practice qualifications can be completed on a module-by-module basis over a period of five years. Many of these courses also offer practice specific pathways for those keen to tailor their study to a particular area of interest.
