Course summary

As part of our Advancing Practice in Health Framework, this award pathway will be of interest to any individual who wishes to advance their practice in the area of radiotherapy.

The radiotherapy pathway is one of a number of pathways offered within our multi-professional Advancing Practice in Health Framework.

Why QMU?

We offer a collaborative multiprofessional online learning environment. Learning and assessment are underpinned by current research and the evolving landscape of health and wellbeing.

Course overview

The radiotherapy pathway is based on a model of collaborative multi-professional learning aligned to expectations of the four pillars of advanced practice (Clinical Practice, Leadership, Education and Research). There are learning opportunities in areas such as fundamentals of advanced practice, critical analysis, evaluation and research methodologies, as well as a number of more specific modules. The framework also offers opportunities to draw on expertise across the University such as business management, leadership, social science and education.

The radiotherapy pathway aims to foster and develop QMU’s mission of cultivating intellectual capital with both a theoretical and practical focus. Learning and teaching is underpinned by research, evidence and scholarship against the background of the current and evolving
political and social landscape for health and wellbeing.

The radiotherapy pathway offers flexibility in modes of study (part time, full time or work place) that are responsive to individual needs and today’s culture of work and learning.

All modules are delivered online and can be studied from a distance.

Additional support is available for those new to or returning to Master’s level study.
