Course summary

Diagnostic Radiographers use the latest technology including Conventional Radiography, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Radionuclide medicine (RNI) and Ultrasound (US) to examine the body and facilitate the effective and timely diagnosis of various medical conditions. As a diagnostic radiographer you will work directly with patients and produce, process and assess images of body structures - for example, skeletal and soft tissue injuries or abnormalities which are used to support and guide direct interventional treatments, procedures and therapies. Throughout the course you will be given the opportunity to develop knowledge of health related sciences including, human anatomy, physiology, medical physics and technology to support the operation, interpretation and diagnostic processes of radiographic imaging. In addition, you will explore patient interaction, care and protection - including safe radiation practice - a fundamental responsibility for diagnostic radiographers. You will also examine the crucial role diagnostic radiographers play in health screening programmes such as cancer screening. Practice placements*, which are sourced for you by the University, are an integral part of the course and aim to enable you to develop clinical skills and work as part of a multidisciplinary team. In addition, you will have the opportunity to learn about performing various aspects of diagnostic radiography practices alongside other healthcare students in the University’s purpose built Simulation Centre, using the latest equipment that would normally be found in clinical settings. The University has a strong partnership with the healthcare sector and placement providers who provide a diverse range of clinical placements including acute, district and community services.We take a ‘learning through exploration’ approach enabling you to put the knowledge and skills you develop in to practice variety of cutting-edge innovative simulated scenarios. Coventry University has invested over £2m in a purpose built new diagnostic radiography suite featuring the latest diagnostic radiography equipment. The professional requirements for this course meet the Health and Care Profession Council (HCPC), the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR), and the European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) standards. Therefore, on successful completion of the course, you are eligible to apply for registration as a radiographer with the HCPC (additional costs apply) making a variety of diagnostic radiography career opportunities available within the UK and abroad.**Why chose this course**+ Opportunity to use our purpose built new diagnostic radiography suite and excellent bespoke learning space providing a variety of cutting-edge innovative simulated scenarios in an interactive learning environment.+ Authentic inter-professional learning opportunities and experiences in both theory and practice, underpinned by healthcare ethics, values and capabilities.+ A student elected clinical placement opportunity in year 2 of the course within the UK or abroad*.+ Engagement with the wider global community - through international activities and partner institutions relevant to the course.+ Development of cultural competence, through understanding diversity and intercultural experiences, to enable radiographer delivered person-centred care. + Digital fluency enhancement via ongoing use of technology applications required for learning theory and professional practice.+ Research opportunity through a student interest led research project.
