Professional Development Workshops & Conferences Calendar

The University of Worcester offer a wide selection of workshops and conferences, which are under constant review to reflect the changes in health care.

As the provision of health care develops and changes in the 21st century, allied health professionals need to keep up to date and continue their life- long learning. Many health professionals do not wish to undertake a full degree or masters course but still want to continue their professional development. To meet this need we offer a wide selection of workshops and conferences, which are under constant review to reflect the changes in health care. Please get in touch if you cannot find what you are looking for, as we are happy to discuss the provision of workshops tailored to the specific requirements of your organisation.

The workshops and conferences are delivered by the diverse members of our course team and also utilize specialists from clinical practice. There are no formal assessments but all participants receive a certificate of attendance.
