This part-time course is for radiographers who are currently working in a clinical environment within mammography services and who want to develop advanced level clinical skills and critical and reflective thinking in practice. A postgraduate qualification in Mammography is essential for radiographers working within the National Breast Screening Programmes.

The course puts great importance on the link between theory and practical skills, with the practice-based learning element structured to promote the development of advanced-level clinical skills and critical and reflective thinking in clinical practice. These skills will strengthen your ability to work as part of the multidisciplinary team. Cutting-edge issues of theory and research in mammography will be critically examined to enable you to focus, extend, develop and strengthen skills in mammography to a level of advanced professional competence.

The course is run in partnership with the Scottish Mammography Education Centre based at the West of Scotland Breast Screening Centre in Glasgow.
