    The core modules consist of: providing person-centered care, health and well-being, further science concepts such as anatomy and physiology, health and safety, the healthcare sector, infection prevention, and managing personal information.

    You will have the opportunity to attend talks from visiting experts and guest speakers covering topics such as regulations and the cultural needs of patients. We work with healthcare professionals to enable you to speak to them about the careers paths and the different specialisms that exist within the NHS.
