Course summary

Overview

This course is designed to support healthcare practitioners who are actively involved in clinical Computed Tomography (CT) to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills in CT that are required of a professional who aspires to work at an advanced level.

This pathway continues to be a popular study choice demonstrating its continued clinical relevance and benefit to healthcare professionals in maintaining their Continuing Professional Development. The pathway is delivered in partnership with clinical and scientific experts working within CT to ensure the curriculum remains appropriately diverse and clinically relevant.

The pathway sits within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme, which offers a range of modules related to medical imaging, healthcare, research and management. Upon successful completion of the Postgraduate Certificate pathway, students can continue their studies by registering for additional modules within the Medical Imaging portfolio to obtain a Postgraduate Diploma or Master's Degree.

Learning and assessment

This part-time course is designed to be studied over an eleven month period and consists of two 30 credit core modules.

A 'block' attendance format is utilised in the delivery of the academic learning components. This is consistent with the other named pathways within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme and is popular with students who benefit academically from the concentrated period of time that can be devoted to their studies.

There are five blocks of academic learning and these are delivered in the first six months of the pathway.

The CT module provides the underpinning theoretical knowledge with regards to CT technology and imaging protocols which is then built upon and applied through guided clinical study in the clinical CT module.

The Clinical CT module requires students to undertake a wide range of CT examinations to demonstrate evidence of their clinical learning.

Assessments include two exams and an assignment related to the Computed Tomography module syllabus, and a presentation and portfolio including clinical case studies for the Clinical Computed Tomography module.

Career prospects

Health professionals are responsible for identifying inequalities in population health and implementing services and care appropriate to narrow the gap and promote healthy lifestyles, that will impact positively on the community as a whole, bringing with it desirable benefits related to economic and social welfare.

A feature of this pathway is its clinical focus and the commitment of the course team to ensure that the programme remains clinically relevant and of value to health care practitioners, and ultimately to patients.

Students enrolled on this pathway are encouraged to evaluate their clinical practice in terms of its value to healthcare and impact on patient outcomes. They will be given the skills to critically reflect on current service delivery options in order to better meet the needs of service and patient population.
