With an integrated approach enabling you to relate your academic work closely to your clinical experience, this programme aims to produce competent, caring therapeutic radiographers, who are able to work at the interface between the latest in medical technology and the cancer patient. The programme will provide the skills and knowledge to enable you to become a professional capable of delivering first class cancer care. You will learn about the nature and development of cancer, the role radiation plays in its management and gain the clinical skills necessary to care for your patients on a daily basis. You will study a range of modules both inter professional for example communication skills, and profession-specific, such as radiation science and technology and oncology modules. Clinical practice is integrated with the academic programme. The clinical placements increase in length from Year One through to Year Three, resulting in a programme attendance of up to 45 weeks per year with some extension into vacation time. All placements are arranged in North West of England Cancer Centres and there is an opportunity to spend an elective period in a Radiotherapy department of your choice.
