Advancing Practice in Medical Imaging (Advancing Practice in Health Framework)

Queen Margaret University


The medical imaging pathway aims to facilitate the development of knowledge and practical skills that underpin advanced MRI/CT practice. The 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 Principles of MRI/CT, MRI/CT in practice, workplace clinical competencies, as well as fundamentals of advancing practice, critical analysis, evaluation and research methodologies. The Framework also offers opportunities to draw on expertise across the University on subjects such as leadership, social science and education.

You can exit with a PgDip or MSc.
