Course Introduction

A major feature of this programme is the option for you to pursue specific knowledge and skills development in your area of practice through the use of work'based learning e.g. breast ultrasound and ultrasound guided biopsy procedures.

The programme includes provision for developing a high standard of mammography skills. However, it also caters for those wishing to move into advanced and consultant practice to meet the evolving requirements of breast screening and diagnostic services.
