About the course
The National Minor Illness Centre (NMIC) Diploma course begins with a Seminar Week which can be taken in two modules.
This is followed by six months of clinical practice supervised by a mentor. This mentor is usually a GP, but nurses who have suitable qualifications in minor illness management and mentoring may be accredited by the NMIC team.
You will be required to submit four assignments: Pharmacology Scenarios, two Case Studies (adult and child), Evidence Based Practice and Organisational Skills. You will also need to complete a Manual of Clinical Competencies, signed by your mentor. For further details see the Nmic Diploma page.
Six months’ free access to the members’ section of NMIC website is available to students attending this course. Students are provided with a copy of the Minor Illness Manual and a USB stick of lecture notes and resource materials.
