Training

ACCPs must complete a programme leading to an appropriate Postgraduate Diploma/Masters degree with a Higher Education Institution.  Teaching within hospitals is overseen by a Local Clinical Lead (LCL) who holds an honorary appointment with the HEI and is responsible to the HEI for the delivery of the clinical components of training. 

A list of the HEIs where ACCP training is available can be found below. Please note that the Faculty do not endorse specific training programmes and this list is not exhaustive; if you are training ACCPs and would like to be included please forward the details of your course (including a link to the relevant webpage) to ficm@rcoa.ac.uk.
