Summary

The MSc in Advanced and Specialist Healthcare Articulated Pathway (Advanced Dental Clinical Practice) is a part-time Master’s-level programme studied over 18 months. It provides the route for FGDP post-registration Diploma and other appropriately qualified students to achieve a full Master's qualification.

The programme is delivered by Kent's Centre for Professional Practice (CPP), based at the Medway campus. It is a joint collaboration between the Centre and the Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) (FGDP (UK)).

Candidates who have successfully completed an FGDP post-registration Diploma or other appropriate programmes may apply for direct access entry with advanced standing of 90 credits to the next available MSc in Advanced and Specialist Healthcare cohort.

The programme fosters intellectual and professional development of experienced healthcare practitioners allowing them to extend and deepen the analytical and critical reasoning powers which underpin practice (e.g. in organisational leadership and change, health and welfare systems, organisations and services and advanced technical procedures and practices).

The programme aims to:

Provide supervision for advanced practitioner-centred research that builds a culture of evaluation and enquiry into the practice environment.

Equip experienced practitioners for their role in challenging, questioning and realigning strategies for specialist practice.

Develop confident senior practitioners who are able to participate in the development of practice, and work effectively with organisational interests and evidence-based processes within complex multidisciplinary teams.
