Course summary

To disseminate imaging knowledge, skills and understanding, to enable effective and efficient imaging clinically, in research and in industry.

Aims of our flexible, intermittent, part-time, online learning (OL) programme: to provide an understanding of imaging theory, techniques, analysis and applications; to develop research planning and designing skills, incorporating imaging; to enable interpretation and analysis of relevant imaging data; to relate imaging research to clinical applications.

Learning outcomes

Describe the full range of imaging theory, techniques, analysis and applications.

Discuss how imaging is used to investigate both normal and abnormal processes and functions (clinically and in research).

Career opportunities

Clinical graduates will exit the programme with improved clinical image management skills, and will also be better able to advise companies and businesses which develop tools and techniques for their specialties, where imaging is required. For pre-clinically focused students, an imaging skill set expands academic possibilities and is more likely to assist with translational techniques necessary to bridge the preclinical and clinical sciences.

The degree will also be attractive as a preliminary qualification before undertaking career training in hospital Medical Physics (for physicists and engineers), as well as a preliminary qualification before taking a PhD or research scientist post involving medical physics, medical imaging, biomechanics in academia or industry.

Online learning

Access world class teaching at the University of Edinburgh, while maintaining your local professional and personal commitments where you live, thereby keeping down costs by not being resident in Edinburgh.

Our online students not only have access to Edinburgh’s excellent resources, but also become part of a supportive online community, bringing together students and tutors from around the world.
