Radiographic Reporting

The number of healthcare professions using images in their work has increased over recent years and there are many groups who would like the ability to interpret films. This course, open to a wide range of healthcare professionals, will provide students with the chance to foster greater inter-professional links. Those healthcare professionals completing the course will have the opportunity to increase their evaluative and problem solving skills within the specialised area of clinical reporting.

Entry requirements

The course is suitable for healthcare professionals, in particular paramedical personnel (including radiographers and extended scope physiotherapists) and nursing personnel (specifically nurse practitioners in Accident and Emergency). Applicants must have written support from their clinical manager, and from a consultant radiologist who is prepared to act as a mentor and provide reporting and tutorial sessions. Applicants must also be eligible for professional registration with the Health Professions Council in the UK or the Nursing and Midwifery Council. For non-native speakers of the English language IELTS 6.5 is required.
