Course content

Please note: this programme is only available to home/EU students.

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.

What will you study

You will study modules relating to breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and care; management; supervisory and assessment roles; quality issues; research methods and ethics; as well as taking a module of independent study to meet a particular professional need or interest.

Some of the modules are developed in partnership with the Jarvis National Breast Screening Training Centre and South West London (St George's) National Breast Screening Training Centre.
