Medical Imaging (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) PG Cert

This part-time programme is designed to be studied over an eleven month period, commencing in early September and being completed in July of the following year. The programme consists of two 30 credit core modules.

The MRI theory module, delivered in the first semester, is designed to give students an understanding of the scientific principles behind magnetic resonance imaging and the knowledge to explore the relationship between technical parameters and anatomical and pathological appearances. This theoretical module may also be accessed by students who are not registered for the full MRI certificate course as an option within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme.

The second module, clinical MRI, is delivered in semester two and is designed to provide the student with a structured and monitored experiential learning opportunity in their workplace. It is designed to enable students to critically evaluate MRI protocols used in clinical practice with respect to the evidence base in order to inform service delivery and practice.

The programme sits within the MSc in Medical Imaging programme and the Faculty of Health Studies SSPRD framework, and upon successful completion of this MRI 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 Master's Degree.
