Course summary

Course overview: Diagnostic radiography plays a key role in modern medicine. It is a care-giving role but also one of the fastest developing technical areas of the health sector. Radiographers produce images to obtain or confirm a diagnosis and are also involved in guiding therapeutic procedures like angioplasty. You could work in one of several sections within a hospital medical-imaging department and carry out a variety of imaging investigations, including projection radiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. This course combines academic study with practice placements in imaging departments. You develop the knowledge, skills and experience for a rewarding career in diagnostic radiography. Throughout the course, as part of the placement experience, you will be required to participate in a shift pattern rota including weekends. Prospective applicants are advised to research the profession of diagnostic radiography prior to writing their personal statements and attendance at the selection event. The very best way to gain an impression of the role is to spend time in the clinical department or gain experience working or volunteering for vulnerable persons. While recognising that this is difficult to arrange, we do provide a form to capture such experiences and this can be brought to selection events or posted to us prior to the end of May. After the course: On successful completion of the course you will gain eligibility to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council as a diagnostic radiographer. Radiographers are in demand in the UK and overseas within the NHS and private sectors.
