Course summary


This programme is primarily aimed at Diagnostic Radiographers although the individual modules, if studied ‘stand-alone’, are applicable to a wide range of healthcare professionals. You're able to combine modules from different clinical areas, such as: image interpretation, reporting, or breast imaging, to build a postgraduate portfolio culminating in a research dissertation to complete the Masters. This post-registration programme in Diagnostic Imaging is intentionally flexible; modules may be studied in any order and at your pace (provided all modules for an award are completed within a six year timeframe). You can also choose between modes, studying everything through distance learning, on-site, or a flexible combination that best meets your needs. You'll meet with your personal tutor/course director each semester to discuss module choice and review your progress. This PgCert, PgDip, MSc suite of awards is designed to meet the continuous professional development requirements of health care professionals who utilise diagnostic imaging procedures in their practice, and in specific cases provides the necessary competence to practice: Provide you with the opportunity to critically reflect on theory, contemporary research, and evidence-based practice related to diagnostic imaging procedures in order to inform your professional practice and enhance stakeholder experience. Develop your advanced knowledge and skills through the critical appraisal of theory and practice related to a range of diagnostic imaging modalities and procedures relevant to current and future roles within the context of UK and international health provisions. Help develop the skills that will support you to actively engagement in the process of lifelong learning (CPPD) through critical reflection, to enhance both your professional practice and future employability. Enable continued professional development through independent and multi-disciplinary learning, thereby demonstrating maintenance of the standard of proficiency articulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and other relevant professional bodies. Professionals undertaking this course will be able to use their knowledge and skills to enhance the service they provide in accordance with their employer's policies. Completion may be used as evidence to support career progression, particularly where making reliable decisions from radiographic images is desirable or essential requirement.


In 2011 the Department of Health identified that the development of advanced practitioners within allied health professional’s (AHP) could result in a significant contribution to high quality clinical care, organisational management, economic sustainability, productivity and all aspects of quality – patient safety, patient experience and the effectiveness of the care that patients receive.
