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.
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.
