Course Summary

This course will allow you to develop your theoretical knowledge and your clinical experience and apply these to current practice. This will support the development of MRI services within your department and equip you with skills and knowledge to evidence your role as an advanced practitioner in MRI.


This course has been designed to support the advancing practice of radiographers in the field of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Between April 2019 and March 2020, 44.9 million diagnostic imaging examinations took place in England alone of which 3.8 million were MRI scans. This is an increase of 1.8% on the year 2018-19 and it is fully expected that this will continue year on year.

Career opportunities

All students will already hold posts across the healthcare sector, nonetheless completion of this programme will enable students to progress into advanced practitioner/lead roles in MRI. Students completing the PGC element of the programme will be encouraged to apply for Advanced Practitioner Accreditation with the Society and College of Radiographers.


Students will learn about the range of MRI techniques which are used to diagnose conditions and trauma. Students will be required to complete a portfolio to evidence their clinical competence in MRI and will be given the opportunity to reflect on their practice.
