This course has been set up with the ultimate aim of producing high quality Clinical Radiology consultants, capable of meeting the challenges of this dynamic and rapidly evolving specialty.
Radiology trainees are required to assimilate a large body of knowledge with which they will have been previously unfamiliar over a relatively short timescale, including detailed knowledge of imaging physics and anatomy as well as the full spectrum of disease processes and associated imaging features. The three clinical modules of the course provide a thorough grounding in these essential areas of knowledge. Generic professional skills do not always receive sufficient focus in everyday radiology training. Furthermore, despite the rapid advances being made in imaging technology, the number of radiologists actively engaged in high quality research remains small. The three professional modules of the course develop skills in the key domains of research, leadership and teaching. The dissertation component of the MSc provides the opportunity to undertake a supervised, high quality piece of research in a chosen subspecialty area.
