Develop clinical expertise through practice and research
The MSc Nuclear Medicine course provides the educational and research foundations required to evaluate current working practice and understand the opportunities currently available in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging environments. As a result, peer learning is a big part of this course's value to individuals and employers. In addition to developing skills directly linked to clinical practice, you will also have the opportunity to contribute to the nuclear medicine knowledge base through research and publication.
The MSc Nuclear Medicine course is designed in conjunction with a number of clinical experts, and our partnership with clinical software provider Hermes Medical Solutions. This means it produces competent and professional practitioners with the skills needed to optimise and promote this imaging modality in current models of patient care.

Learning and Teaching
The course is designed to give you the knowledge and skills needed to practice in a safe and competent manner, and a comprehensive education and research base to evaluate and inform current and future practice. There are many opportunities for inter-professional collaboration and shared learning, and you'll learn in practical settings how nuclear medicine contributes to patient management.
UWE Bristol's Allied Health Professions Department, based at the Glenside campus, provides an extensive range of teaching and learning resources.
You'll have access to an online image-processing platform (TeleHERMES), with which you can view, manipulate and process a range of nuclear medicine datasets in a 'safe' environment. Such activities meet current government strategies and give you a realistic simulation of current working practices.
The Glenside library is one of the best healthcare libraries in England, with a huge selection of books, e-books, journals, and audio-visual materials including access to specialist health and social care software packages. You can access much of this material online. Find out more: http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whyuwe/fantasticfacilities
