Diagnostic Radiography - University of Plymouth

The role of the modern Diagnostic Radiographer has changed dramatically in recent years to keep up with innovations in medical imaging technology. Diagnostic Radiographers now take high-quality images to help diagnose conditions using a wide range of imaging modalities, including X-ray, Ultrasound, Fluoroscopy, Computerised Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Medicine, Angiography and Mammography. They also work closely with patients and members of the wider health care team to ensure the delivery of high-quality care. The BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography course builds on the internationally-recognised success of the University of Plymouth’s Peninsula Medical School, which produces exceptionally well-prepared students entering clinical career pathways. Harnessing our extensive educational experience in delivering successfully evidence-based and innovative programmes, we have designed a contemporary programme which will prepare you for a diverse and exciting role in the modern workplace. The programme has been designed to not only enable you to attain the core knowledge you need to be a safe and effective practitioner, but also to help you develop as a resilient professional with all the skills and attributes you will need to develop your career further. Learning opportunities are interactive and engaging, often within small groups, where clinically focussed learning ensures optimal preparation for future practice. You also have opportunities to learn alongside other healthcare professionals. This inter-professional team learning provides you with invaluable experience and insight into how your role fits within the wider healthcare community. In Plymouth, you will also have unprecedented radiographic access to the only purpose-built Radiology Academy in the world and one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe, as well as state-of-the-art virtual dissection and imaging facilities. The University of Plymouth BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography is subject to Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) approval. Graduates of approved programmes are eligible to apply for HCPC registration.
