Clinical Improvement Programme (CIP)

The Clinical Improvement Programme includes an improvement project alongside a clinical component, with a number of configurations. The programme includes an improvement project alongside a clinical component, linked to the School’s ‘Improvement Hub’ leading from Innovator to Senior Fellowship levels:

  • Innovator - Engagement with mentored improvement work in an applied context. This will include access to Level 7 modules that scaffold the improvement work and may be completed for a module-based award at Level 7 or without assessment to aid the project and form part of CPD accreditation.
  • Fellowship - A formal research project built from the improvement work that is registered for a PGR award that is registered at a Masters by Research (Implementation) level, alongside the clinical component.
  • Senior Fellowship - A formal research project built from the improvement work that is registered for a PGR award focused primarily on the Professional Doctorate (Implementation) alongside the clinical component. Other options would be accessible from the portfolio of modules available within the School and the University Doctoral School to provide’ added-value’.
