Musculoskeletal medicine (MSK) is a rapidly developing field of medicine practised by a variety of clinicians including general practitioners and allied healthcare professionals. This online course is specifically designed to provide students with flexibility to tailor their time to their schedule.
The online PGCert in MSK medicine is built to meet the needs of those wishing to work in this field within both primary care and community MSK services.

The course is aligned with the joint MSK Diploma exam of the Primary Care Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Medicine Society and the Faculty of Sport & Exercise Medicine.
The programme offers:
• Flexible learning via an online education platform;
• Monthly live online tutorials;
• Individual topics taught by UK clinicians who are experts within their specialist field;
