Advice and support will be provided by the course leader to ensure their profile is appropriate; students identify their wish to enter the Professional Doctorate when they have completed the PG Diploma. They will have completed 2 healthcare research modules, 1 research and ethics module and 3 option modules or their equivalent. Participants will have achieved an overall grade of 60 per cent or over; students will enter the programme having completed an appropriate Masters programme. Participants will have achieved an overall grade of 60 per cent or over, and have completed equivalent of the compulsory research modules.
Stage 1 uses both core and option modules from both the research and professional practice perspectives many of which are also included in the many masters awards in health. This allows you to develop both research and practitioner inquiry and skills alongside your CPD and professional understanding of your field. Stage 2 involves completion of a thesis at NQF Level 8 which is the completion of a written submission of 40,000-60,000 words on your applied professional research. There are no taught modules at this stage.
