Conversion course for Supplementary Prescribers
This short professional course is for physiotherapists, podiatrists and therapeutic radiographers who have already completed the Non-Medical Prescribing course and who wish to become an independent prescriber.
You will have been practising as a supplementary prescriber in the area for which you intend to prescribe independently for at least six months.
The course involves two University-based study days, followed by two days of self-directed supervised clinical practice with a Designated Medical Practitioner (DMP).
