“A new and innovative approach to teaching, learning and assessment”

The new programme reflects current practices in nuclear medicine by recognising the important role hybrid imaging techniques play in routine and advanced procedures. A new and innovative approach to teaching, learning and assessment will not only prepare you for practice but will also help you develop skills in research, writing and evidence based practice.

“Convert your current PgDip to an MSc”

If you already have a PGDip in nuclear medicine from Salford or another University you can register for the dissertation module to convert this to an MSc. The topic of your dissertation is negotiable, so if you have a burning issue you would like to research please contact the dissertation module leader, John Thompson.
