Radiographic Studies DipHE

1. Overview

This is a two year part-time blended learning course.

This is a two year part-time blended learning course for support workers employed within a UK based Diagnostic Imaging department.

This two-year part time in service course will equip the radiography assistant practitioner with the knowledge and skills to participate in a defined range of routine diagnostic imaging procedures under the supervision of a registered radiographer.

Year 2 of this course has been developed to enable qualified Diagnostic Assistant Practitioners to further develop their knowledge and skills and ultimately their career.

This work based course combines a core knowledge base with clinical practice. It provides a platform upon which additional study can be built potentially to degree level and beyond.

Course accreditation and annual monitoring by the College of Radiographers ensures that the course meets professional and clinical standards. Successful completion of the Dip HE, may lead to possible entry to year 3 of the BSc Diagnostic Radiography course.
