Course content

The medical imaging pathway is based on a model of collaborative multi-professional learning aligned to expectations of the four pillars of advanced practice (Clinical Practice, Leadership, Education and Research). There are learning opportunities in areas such as fundamentals of advanced practice, critical analysis, evaluation and research methodologies, as well as a number of more specific modules. The Framework also offers opportunities to draw on expertise across the University such as business management, leadership, social science and education.

The medical imaging pathway aims to foster and develop QMU’s vision of ideas and influence and its mission of cultivating intellectual capital with both a theoretical and practical focus. Learning and teaching is underpinned by research, evidence and scholarship against a background of the current and evolving political and social landscape for health and wellbeing.

The Medical Imaging pathway offers flexibility in modes of study (part-time, full-time, work place) that are responsive to individual needs and today’s culture of work and learning.

All modules are delivered online and can be studied from a distance.

Additional support is available for those new to or returning to master's level study.
