Course Summary

This course is designed for practitioners who wish to enhance their knowledge and skills in the interpretation of medical images and is jointly validated by the College of Radiographers. It provides support for developing service requirements for reporting radiographers and other healthcare practitioners at consultant and advanced practitioner levels. The aims of the programme and learning outcomes of modules encompass the four pillars of advanced clinical practice as described by Health Education England, namely: management, leadership, education and research.
