The overall aim of the module is to allow practitioners working in the field of MRI to gain the knowledge and skills to develop a more in depth understanding of the theoretical applications of MRI in order to enhance practice and service provision. This is based on the integration of academic underpinning with practical experience.

The course structure will allow the student to gain theoretical knowledge as well as having the opportunity for reflective learning within their own work place. This will facilitate the development of skilled reflective practitioners with the theoretical knowledge and understanding of the principles of MRI in order to practise within their speciality area. The learning outcomes relate to the Education and Career Framework for the Radiography Workforce by allowing students to develop their specialist practice.

The course also fits within the SCoR Learning and Development Framework by allowing practitioners to fulfil their continuing professional development needs having identified competence in MRI as a goal to enable practice at a higher level in line with their career progression framework.

Course structure

The theoretical element of the course (lectures, discussions, online activities and practical workshops) will last for 16 weeks and will be delivered over four days during that time frame. An MRI scanning console simulator will be utilised during practical workshops to demonstrate manipulation and optimisation of scanning parameters allowing each student to learn in a safe and controlled environment. A 3000 word critical assignment will assess knowledge and understanding

Professional registration

Certification of Competence and CPD Accreditation by the College of Radiographers is being sought.
