Course summary

Gain a recognised professional qualification, or embark on postgraduate professional studies Clinical Photography certificates are officially approved by both CAMIP and IMI Perfect for existing or trainee medical illustrators.

This course provides continuing professional development, including specialist knowledge and skills, for people who are already in work as medical illustrators.

It forms part of the Medical Illustration Programme of work-based, distance-learning awards.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: PgCert Graphic Design for Health Care.

Course content

This award is based on learning through work-based assignments, so it is really only suitable for those who are employed in a healthcare environment that gives them access to the clinical situations, specialist equipment and workplace supervisors necessary for the successful completion of those assignments.

Learning support

Your course tutors will provide lots of support. But you can also take advantage of our Academic Skills team, who can help you with:

  • Study skills (including reading, note-taking and presentation skills)
  • Written English (including punctuation, grammar)
  • Academic writing (including how to reference)
  • Research skills
  • Critical thinking
  • Revision, assessment and exam skills (including time management)

Careers

For Graphic Designers for Health Care, the Graduate Certificate award constitutes evidence that you have undertaken this professional development course and that you have achieved all of its learning outcomes. It bears witness to the fact that you have learned, and can practise, key professional skills and that you have acquired and critically reflected on a professionally relevant body of knowledge.

The Postgraduate Certificates will provide evidence that you have acquired all of the learning outcomes associated with the Graduate Certificate awards and that you have given additional attention to the more academic, theoretical issues in medical illustration, taking a more questioning, critical and analytical approach to theories, practice-based issues and case studies. This award could also qualify you to progress to a Postgraduate Diploma and, eventually, a Masters qualification if the demand justifies the development of these further awards by the university.
