Women's Health Diploma - by face to face blocks in Lancashire and clinics in London
FAST TRACK BOTH YEARS, OR APEL INTO YEAR TWO (FOR THOSE WITH EXISTING EXPERIENCE / TRAINING)
FAST TRACK - This is only possible in this Lancashire in-person option. Do all 4 blocks on one year, follow some individually arranged tutorials and complete your 2 sets of clinic and the assessments. If you really want to kick start your women's health career, this is the option for you. Check details below. Or, stick to 2 blocks and one clinic a year and space out your learning if you want to take more time.
APEL - this is only possible with prior training, and by doing the 2 year two lecture blocks in Nelson, plus the 4 day advanced pelvic floor and internals - required even for Mummy MOT people, as we do a more detailed and extensive programme - supported by a lot of additional theory, plus a 6 day clinic in London. To ensure knowledge alignment, there is a requirement to do some online with this - an extensive complex and chronic pelvic pain module series, which needs to be completed as well as the in person options (approx 25 hours of pre-recorded lectures, to be completed before the 4 day advanced internals block).
COMES WITH ACCOMMODATION FOR THE LECTURES IN NELSON INCLUDED (limited places - first come first served, after that, you need to find / fund your own)
THE WOMEN'S HEALTH DIPLOMA:
This in-person lecture and practical version (whether spread over 2 years - 2 blocks and one clinic / practical session a year) or fast tracked, is to allow you to attend lectures in person. The 10 days of in person lectures per year includes all your core material and practical techniques for year one. There is a little bit of online learning / chat forums and assessment preparation and guidance online. In year one the additional clinical / practice block is 6 days and in year two it is 10 days - a 6 day clinical / practical week and a 4 day block - to allow for additional training in internals, pelvic pain and pelvic organ prolapse - to enable your entry into the ongoing Certification Programme for complex and chronic pelvic pain and dysfunction. This is organised through WHOMBS. See whombs.org
YOU ALSO GET ACCESS TO A HUGE AND WIDE-RANGING ONLINE LIBRARY OF LECTURES, RESOURCES, VIDEOS, PAPERS ETC AS PART OF YOUR PACKAGE*. This is yours to keep in the long term.
The clinics are in London. NB for 2024 some of the year two practical / clinics are in Bristol. (The year two date of 4-5-6-7 July covers advanced pelvic floor and internals, and this year is in Bristol.
The in-person lectures are held in 2 5-day blocks a year in Nelson, Lancashire, and there are various options for dates and you can do the 2 blocks in any order.
