Aims & learning outcomes
To disseminate neuroimaging knowledge, skills & understanding, in order to enable effective & efficient use of neuroimaging in research.
Aims of our flexible, intermittent, part-time, online distance learning (OLDL) programme:
- to provide an understanding of research, which uses neuroimaging techniques
- to develop research planning & designing skills, incorporating neuroimaging
- to enable interpretation & analysis of relevant neuroimaging data
- to relate neuroimaging research to clinical applications
Learning outcomes for students who complete the full Master's (MSc) programme:
- describe imaging theory, techniques, analysis & applications
- discuss how imaging is used to investigate both normal & abnormal processes & functions (clinically and in research)
- design methodologically sound & practical research which uses neuroimaging
- analyse results & use statistics relevant to & derived from neuroimaging
- integrate health & safety regulations, & legislation, into the planning & execution of research which uses neuroimaging
- envision the translation from basic neuroimaging research to the clinical arena
- critically appraise existing research which uses neuroimaging, demonstrating awareness of reproducibility, reliability of techniques, & sources of bias, both in research & clinically
- be innovative in the discussion & presentation of work to peers
- formulate suitable grant & research proposals which incorporate neuroimaging
- initiate & execute research autonomously
- produce publishable research summaries
- demonstrate good practice in research communication & collaboration, including modern online methods
- engage with new developments building upon your neuroimaging knowledge
FAQ: Will I be a qualified radiologist after taking this training?
- This is a postgraduate degree leading to a MSc / Diploma / Certificate.
- This is not a substitute for specialist medical or surgical training, but may enhance or supplement such training.
- For training to become a radiologist, contact the Royal College of Radiologists.
- Our courses & programmes are:
- Often completed by trainees & qualified radiologists wishing to expand their imaging knowledge & analysis skills.
- Suitable for radiology & medical / surgical Continuing Professional Development (CPD) / Continuing Medical Education (CME) points & portfolios.
