The course is structured in a modular format. Students complete modules totalling 120 M-level credits to be eligible for an exit award of a Postgraduate Diploma. All students complete a compulsory generic module in Research Methods in Health and Social Care (30 credits). The modules are those considered to be of relevance to the practising radiographer and other allied health professionals engaged with imaging. Theoretical and clinical practice elements combine in order to optimise service delivery, enhance clinical skills and improve the overall management of the patient. Those undertaking the MSc are required to complete the research methods module.
Full-time students undertake all taught modules during one academic year, while part-time students undertake taught modules over two years. Assessment methods used vary according to the modules but include coursework, practicals and presentations with image reporting and mammography modules having clinically based assessments.
Students successfully completing sufficient modules are able to proceed to the dissertation stage and if successful will be eligible for the award of a Master of Science degree.
The course is suitable for qualified diagnostic/therapeutic radiographers with usually at least two years clinical experience.
