This is a vocational programme with a large amount of clinical practice throughout the three years. The aim of this programme is to equip you with the knowledge, skills and attributes you will need to meet the challenges of being a competent and caring diagnostic radiographer working at the centre of modern medicine. You will develop knowledge of human anatomy and the way the body works, both in health and disease. As well as becoming a competent radiographer, you will learn about the physical, psychosocial and environmental factors that influence the patient radiographer interaction. The primary objective of the programme is to provide the necessary understanding, knowledge, attributes and skills required to undertake appropriate diagnostic imaging examinations in a variety of clinical circumstances. You will study a range of modules including anatomy, physiology, pathology and radiation science, as well as profession-specific modules. For your clinical training, you will be based at one of our training departments throughout the region. Clinical placements are arranged beyond the normal University teaching time and extend into vacation time. There are clinical placements in each year of the programme, and these placements increase in length from Year One through to Year Three, resulting in 50 weeks clinical placement attendance. During the programme you will have the opportunity to undertake a two-week elective in an imaging department of your choice.
