Radiology - Multidisciplinary Radiology

Your Course
Radiology is a vast and ever growing field within medicine that is evolving at a pace that is almost difficult to comprehend. It plays a major role within multidisciplinary team care provision with many specialists now dependent on radiological imaging for clinical decision-making. The MSc/PDip in Multidisciplinary Radiology is designed to meet this need. The programme is multidisciplinary in nature, with a fully integrated clinical and radiological approach to patient care both among faculty and learners. We have designed our modules with distance learning in mind. The traditional class-based educational activities are run in one-week blocks for each module. This means that a student will only be required to travel to campus for five weeks over the course of the academic year, or this will be spread over the two years if doing the course part-time. Utilising contemporary distance learning online technologies students can complete the remaining components of the module in their own time through self-directed learning while not present on campus.

3 GOOD REASONS TO STUDY THIS COURSE

1. The modules are flexible and can be undertaken even if you do not live in Ireland.

2. You will be required to travel to campus three to six times over two years to attend classbased components.

3. Class-based modules are designed in one-week blocks to help make travelling arrangements easier.

Careers or further progression

Career Opportunities
This programme is designed for clinicians who rely on imaging for decision-making, for whom a radiology qualification may offer new career progression routes or for those who wish to further their individual knowledge, skills and research capabilities in the discipline of Radiology. The majority of previous graduates entered into national radiology training programmes in Ireland and the United Kingdom. Others used the programme to upskill either in specific areas (musculoskeletal for instance) or to further their research careers in other disciplines.
