|Department||Business and Law|
|Telephone||0116 250 6070|
The course is aimed at healthcare professionals directly responsible for patient care, particularly those caring for psychiatric patients and clinicians engaged in medical research. It is also suitable for NHS Trust staff concerned with clinical governance, risk management or resourcing decisions.
This course is designed to help you identify and manage the issues you encounter in the modern workplace. Our targeted medical law and ethics modules will focus on developing and applying your practical skills, analysis, evaluation and application of the specialised legal subject matter, culminating in a final assessment. Delivery is by lectures and seminars, guided learning, independent learning, problem-based learning and resource-based learning approaches.
You will be taught by legal experts who have a wealth of experience. These will include barristers, solicitors, professors and practitioners from the international legal arena.
The programme covers real-world ethical issues including euthanasia, abortion, mental health, medical negligence, patient safety and Coroner’s law.
You can expand your knowledge of the law in dedicated learning spaces, including access to a crown court – a site of trials since the Middle Ages, a training courtroom and a simulated Judge's Chambers suite. In addition, the university's Hugh Aston Building has a dedicated law library exclusively for law students, allowing you to practise scenario-based learning.
You will develop and apply values, skills, knowledge and behaviours that will enable them to contribute to the development of a just, peaceful and sustainable world.
Benefit from Education 2030, where a simplified ‘block learning’ timetable means you will study one subject at a time and have more time to engage with your learning, receive faster feedback and enjoy a better study-life balance.
