Course description

This course is provided through a partnership between LSBU and King’s College Hospital National
Breast Screening Training Centre. Applicants will normally be a HPC registered radiographer, with a relevant professional qualification, or in possession of a first degree in a science, biomedical or health and social care subject. The Mammographic Studies Programme is designed to address the increasingly specialised needs of radiographers for education to underpin professional practice in breast diagnosis. The programme includes provision for developing a high standard of mammography skills, but also caters for those wishing to move into advanced and consultant practice to meet the evolving requirements of breast screening and diagnostic services.

A major feature of this programme is the option for you to pursue specific knowledge and skills development in your area of practice through the use of work-based learning e.g. breast ultrasound, ultrasound guided biopsy and x-ray guided interventional procedures.

Career opportunities

Requirements in respect of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) linked to professional regulation and Knowledge Skills Framework (KSF) requirements, means that flexible
and responsive education and training provision is increasingly important to practitioners and their managers. This programme will assist in developing your career options as a practitioner, or into specialist, advanced and consultant practice, research or management areas.

This course is for radiographers who are currently working in a clinical environment offering mammography experience. The course will focus on the evaluation of health care provision enabling both skills and theory to be integrated within clinical practice while strengthening the ability to contribute effectively as a member of a multi-disciplinary team. Issues at the cutting edge of theory and research in mammography will be critically examined to enable you to focus, extend, develop and strengthen skills in mammography to a level of advanced professional competence.

Radiographers who already possess ‘The Certificate of Competence’ can apply for an exemption from the work-based learning modules. The work-based learning element is structured to promote the development of advanced-level operational skills and critical and reflective thinking in clinical practice. It will focus on the ability to undertake independent learning and to become a critically reflective practitioner.

Depending on your modules choice, you are able to follow a pathway within mammography that will lead to either
advancement in specialist clinical skills, education and training or health-care management.

Teaching, learning and assessment

As this course places the student at the heart of the learning process, you will be expected to take overall responsibility for your learning. The teaching and learning strategies are designed to enable independent progress within a supportive framework. Your performance on the course will be assessed by a case study, reports, seminar presentations, a clinical assessment, essays, portfolio and a research project. Class sizes are variable and can range from 8 -25 approximately.

Teaching hours and attendance

If completing the course part-time over three years, it is likely that you will attend classes at the beginning of each module at the West of Scotland Breast Screening Centre in Glasgow and then carry out further independent work. The Research Methods module is taught electronically, so no attendance is required.
