University Of Cumbria Nuclear Medicine

This programme aims to develop your interest in and knowledge and understanding of the continually expanding field of Healthcare Science. It will prepare you for a career as a Practitioner in healthcare science, under the Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) programme of the Department of Health (DoH).

Apart from the underpinning physical, biological, psychological and social sciences background that you will require, the programme will develop the generic and transferable skills expected for a career in health care. This will be achieved through a wide and varied delivery between academic and applied clinical working and through inter-professional co-operation. Through recognising the rapidly changing frameworks of the National Health Service, the programme aims to assure that you are both safe and proficient for your first post in a health care environment.

As a successful graduate you will possess the essential knowledge, skills, experience and attributes required of a newly qualified Radiotherapy Practitioner, Radiation Physics Practitioner or Nuclear Medicine Practitioner.
