The pathway is delivered in partnership with key clinical specialists to ensure that it is clinically relevant and delivered using appropriate expertise drawn from the higher education and hospital sectors.

A feature of this pathway is its clinical focus and its flexibility to support students who are reporting or planning to report in a range of imaging modalities and anatomical systems. By the end of the pathway, students will be able to apply their medical image reporting skills, of their chosen area of practice, within the clinical environment, ensuring that technically correct imaging reports are generated.
Typical areas of practice include reporting of the musculoskeletal system, chest, abdomen, cranial CT, and gastrointestinal system.

Students should be practicing in the area for which they intend to study, for example cranial CT students must have access to clinical CT facilities.

Why Bradford?

The University of Bradford has a long tradition in Medical Image Reporting education and this experience is utilised in the delivery of this pathway. The Radiographic Image Reporting (RIR) Certificate pathway was first validated in 1996 subsequently developing to support reporting across a wide range of Medical Imaging examinations and has proved to be a popular choice of study demonstrating its continued clinical relevance and benefit to healthcare professionals.


Principles of Image Reporting
Medical Image Reporting

Learning activities and assessment

The course sits within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme and the Faculty of Health Studies SSPRD framework, and upon successful completion of this MIR course students can continue their studies by registering for additional modules from the Medical Imaging or School module portfolio, to obtain a postgraduate Diploma or Masters Degree. This part-time pathway is designed to be studied over a one year period and consists of two 30 credit modules, commencing in early September with the Principles of Reporting module, followed in February with the Medical Image Reporting module.

A `block' attendance format is utilised as well as significant “directed” clinical study, with support from your host department and distance support from the academic team in the delivery of the clinical and academic learning. This is consistent with the other named pathways within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme and is popular with students who benefit academically from the concentrated period of time that can be devoted to their studies. There are two blocks of academic learning for the Principles of Reporting module and two blocks for the Medical Image Reporting module.

The module content and learning outcomes have informed the methods of delivery. Students will have opportunity to engage with learning through a range of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, group work, directed study, and, in the case of the clinical module, guided clinical learning.

This wide range of teaching approaches ensures that students can consolidate learning through a range of activities. In particular, small group learning and discussion of clinical cases promotes problem solving skills and peer education, skills necessary for clinical practitioners aspiring to work at an advanced level of practice. While away from the University, students can access course materials and engage in online discussions and learning activities through the University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

A range of assessments are incorporated into the programme, but there is a requirement to complete a clinical audit of reports which must achieve 95% concurrence during audit, measured against the standard report of the host department.

Career support and prospects

The University is committed to helping students develop and enhance employability and this is an integral part of many programmes. Specialist support is available throughout the course from Career and Employability Services including help to find part-time work while studying, placements, vacation work and graduate vacancies. Students are encouraged to access this support at an early stage and to use the extensive resources on the Careers website.

Discussing options with specialist advisers helps to clarify plans through exploring options and refining skills of job-hunting. In most of our programmes there is direct input by Career Development Advisers into the curriculum or through specially arranged workshops.

There is a growing concern for environmental conservation and sustainable development across the globe. To achieve long-term environmental sustainability, it requires innovative solutions to many problems caused by human. These problems include the presence of micropollutants in drinking water, noxious aerosols and fumes in the air, heavy metals and toxic organics in solid wastes that will eventually overwhelm our landfill sites. The scarcity of water resources, the ever-deteriorating air quality in many metropolises, the threat of mounting volumes of waste without suitable disposal sites, and a long list of other critical issues must be resolved through the innovations of scientists and engineers.

Environmental problems are essentially interdisciplinary issues. These issues include the physical process of mixing and dilution, chemical and biological processes, mathematical modeling, data acquisition and measurement. The Environmental Engineering (EVNG) Program offered by the School of Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is one of the most successful interdisciplinary research programs in this field of study. The faculty members are leading experts committed to innovative research in a broad range of environmental engineering areas. The Environmental Engineering Program offers a comprehensive curriculum that provides a solid foundation on which students may build careers in research.

The MPhil program seeks to strengthen students’ knowledge of environmental engineering and to expose them to issues in environmental pollution and conservation, and sustainable development. Students are required to undertake coursework and successfully complete a thesis to demonstrate competence in research.
