About the Accredited Scientific Practice (ASP) programme

The Accredited Scientific Practice (ASP) programme enables employers to develop bespoke short courses to meet training needs within the Healthcare Science workforce.


An ASP programme involves work-based learning and academic study. Modules from the School’s portfolio of programmes provides a quality assured, rigorously assessed training course and all modules are available for inclusion.

Completion of an ASP programme allows voluntary entry to a directory held by the Academy for Healthcare Sciences (AHCS) to recognise the expertise developed through the programme. While not a direct route to equivalence for professional registration as a Healthcare Scientist, demonstrating completion of the programme may form part of a portfolio. With additional examples of experience and prior learning added to a portfolio to demonstrate the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for the appropriate level of professional registration.
