Course content

Mammography exists in a changing professional environment and requires practitioners to continually update and review clinical practice. These courses provide a flexible framework to prepare you for advanced practice by studying topics relevant to your needs and those of your clinical departments.

You may be granted credits for your previous academic and professional qualification through Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) scheme. You can take individual modules as 'free standing' as part of your continuing professional development (CPD). An independent work-based learning module enables you to study around your individual CPD and workplace needs.

These courses are delivered in partnership between Kingston University and St George's, University of London. You will benefit from the expertise and facilities of both institutions.

State-of-the-art facilities include VERT, a treatment planning suite and a diagnostic radiography simulation suite comprising two X-ray tubes, X-ray table, erect bucky, mobile machine, image intensifier and four ultrasound machines. Imaging facilities include computed radiography and digital radiography.

Mammography pathways are delivered in collaboration with two specialist breast screening units.
