The theoretical component of the module will be self-supported through independent academic study. During this study the student will have access to the entire range of Queen Margaret University College electronic library facilities as well as guidance to access those provided by the respective UK Health Departments. Students will be encouraged to consider the implications of the skills they are learning in relation to current research, medico legal, ethical and governance issues.

-£430 for UK students
-£1320 for international students

Typical Entry:
Applicants must be HCPC registered radiographers working in the Breast Care Service and hold an MSc/PgDip in Medical Ultrasound.
