Postgraduate
MSc Multidisciplinary Radiology

NUI Galway

Course Overview


Radiology is a vast and ever growing field within medicine that is evolving at a pace that is almost difficult to comprehend. It plays a major role within multidisciplinary team care provision with many specialists now dependent on radiological imaging for clinical decision making.

Clinicians must evolve with this in terms of our own understanding, clinical skills and engagement with research and development. The MSc/PDip in Multidisciplinary Radiology is designed to meet this need.
With this in mind this course is designed for clinicians who:
• rely on imaging for decision making within their specialty
• for whom a radiology qualification may offer new career progression routes
• wish to further their individual radiological knowledge, skills and research capabilities
The programme is multidisciplinary in nature, with a fully integrated Clinical and Radiological approach to patient care both among faculty and learners. It is a blended course taught using traditional class-based educational activities and contemporary distance learning technologies.
