Student Profile(s)

Lawrence Arthur

"After 20 years as a practising radiographer, I decided to extend my studies and career by undertaking Kingston's Radiography MSc. On completing the course, my qualification soon attracted the interest of the University of Ghana, who offered me a post as head of their Department of Radiography, where I am now using my skills to train other technicians.

"Ghana has many locally trained radiographers, but there are fewer than 30 who actually hold degrees. I am very keen to share examples of the good healthcare practice I saw in England with radiography students in Africa.

"I also manage the CT Scanning Unit at the Korlebu Teaching Hospital in Accra, Ghana. The people skills I gained at Kingston are a huge asset in running a department, and the professional leadership techniques I mastered on the course are vital for building relationships with colleagues and students. One of my main challenges will be sourcing funds for more books, journals, computers and teaching aids.

"My next goal is to develop an exchange programme with Kingston's School of Radiography."
