Image Appreciation (PgDip/PgCert )
The programme is structured in a modular format and modules are run in short blocks of two to three days. Each module is credit rated at M level according to the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales. Students may leave with any number of credits according to how many modules they successfully complete. The PgDip/PgCert can be studied on a part-time basis, with students completing 60 credits per year over two years, or alternatively students can register to study one or two modules per year on a sessional basis.
All students undertake a compulsory 30-credit module on Introduction to image appreciation and evaluation and then choose one further module from a possible three anatomical specialisations – Appendicular, Axial, Chest and Abdomen.
In order to qualify for the postgraduate diploma, students complete one or two further anatomical specialisation modules or one specialisation module and another 30 credit module from the shared postgraduate portfolio of modules run by the School of Healthcare Studies.
The course offers knowledge and expertise to enable qualified healthcare professionals to carry out clinical image appreciation acting as autonomous professionals and use the results of their image appreciation in the overall management of the patient.
