About Postgraduate Medicine

Postgraduate Medicine at Manchester Met is a university wide initiative that brings together medical educators, researchers and healthcare professionals to strengthen the North West workforce. 

In collaboration with NHS partners, we have developed a suite of taught masters courses aimed at upskilling medical professionals in the areas needed most by Trusts and residents across the region. Alongside taught masters, we have a flexible CPD portfolio shaped to meet the needs of the health and social care sector.

The University has a long history of training and educating healthcare professionals. We put employer’s needs at the heart of our professional programmes. From bio medical scientists, physiotherapists, clinicians, speech and language therapists to nurses and psychologists, we have a broad range of programmes to support the health and social care workforce.

Partnership working is key to an integrated health and social care system and it’s at the core of our research and teaching. Our partnerships with NHS and private healthcare providers, particularly Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust and Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, bring together academic and clinical professionals to innovate in research, develop a curriculum that’s relevant and forward thinking, and ultimately improve the lives of service users.

By working with our partners, we have identified four areas of focus for our masters provision, specifically chosen to address prevalent health issues amongst Greater Manchester residents and to support the recruitment and retention of highly trained medical professionals within the North West.

Areas of focus:

One of our defining and distinctive features in terms of our health research is our unique combination of disciplines and expertise that bring together health and social care practitioners with architects, policy makers and people to make sure that we are answering the health challenges that we face as a nation.
