Curriculum

Study a range of topics that consolidate and develop your understanding of routine practice in nuclear medicine. These modules, which include theoretical and clinical components, give you the opportunity to discuss your current practice or departmental procedures with a range of peers, clinical experts and academic tutors. 

  • Fundamental Clinical Skills in Nuclear Medicine - (30 Level M credits) - A professional practice introduction to the fundamentals of routine practices in nuclear medicine, including imaging protocols and procedures, imaging agents, and being able to distinguish between normal and abnormal image appearances.
  • Science and Instrumentation in Current Nuclear Medicine Practice - (15 Level M credits) - An introduction to basic concepts in nuclear medicine physics, and the interaction between radioactive substances and matter. We also look at current designs for cameras used in nuclear medicine.
  • Cross-sectional Anatomy for the Nuclear Medicine Practitioner - (15 Level M credits) - An overview of the regional anatomy associated with the head, neck and trunk and its relation to nuclear medicine practice. This module also encourages you to investigate disease processes common in the nuclear medicine environment, using cross-sectional data. 

Enhance your understanding of nuclear medicine's development, and consider its current and future role in patient treatment. You also study a small-scale research-type module to highlight the importance of work-based learning.

  • Enhancing Nuclear Medicine Practice - (30 Level M credits) - Here we discuss emerging topics in nuclear medicine, in relation to clinical technique, professional practice, and overall impact on patient management.
  •  Current Applications of Hybrid Imaging Practice - (15 Level M credits) - As well as an overview of the practicalities of working in the hybrid imaging environment, this module takes a closer look at the multidisciplinary aspects and roles of hybrid imaging, and its likely technological developments.
  • Evidencing Work Based Learning - (15 Level M credits) - Your chance to show the importance of work-based learning, by working alongside your manager or workplace mentor to find the best solutions to specific situational challenges.
