Develop clinical expertise through practice and research

This course provides the educational and research foundations required to evaluate current working practice and understand the opportunities currently available in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging environments. As a result, peer learning is a big part of this course's value to individuals and employers. In addition to developing skills directly linked to clinical practice, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the nuclear medicine knowledge base through research and publication.

This course is designed in conjunction with a number of clinical experts, and our partnership with clinical software provider Hermes Medical Solutions. This means it produces competent and professional practitioners with the skills needed to optimise and promote this imaging modality in current models of patient care.

Learning and Teaching

The course is mostly distance-based, with only three contact days per year. This approach is highly popular for employers and employees in nuclear medicine, and is supported by a range of clinical experts alongside our academic team.

It's designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to practice in a safe and competent manner, and a comprehensive education and research base to evaluate and inform current and future practice.

There are many opportunities for inter-professional collaboration and shared learning, and you'll learn in practical settings how nuclear medicine contributes to patient management.
