About Diagnostic Radiotherapy at Sheffield Hallam University

This course equips you with the knowledge and skills needed by radiographers to work in the health service. Diagnostic radiographers carry out referrals from healthcare professionals to help diagnose patients and determine their treatments. We have close links with hospital departments with whom we share research and clinical expertise. You also benefit from the clinical expertise and specialised subject areas of our teaching team. They introduce you to present and developing methods of imaging and conventional radiography. Radiographers do not just work in hospital X-ray departments. There may be separate departments for ultrasound examinations, magnetic resonance imaging or nuclear medicine, though in some hospitals these are in a single department. They may need to examine patients in the operating theatre or on the wards, and to use their initiative and make decisions, independently and as part of a team. Diagnostic radiographers use highly technical equipment but the work also involves helping patients to relax and understand what is happening. You work with patients from birth to the elderly and must adapt your approach to meet the individual's needs. You study some interprofessional education modules alongside students from other health disciplines, such as nurses, physiotherapists and social workers. This shared learning experience allows you to develop teamworking and understand the contribution different professionals make. The course is based in our £13 million purpose-built Robert Winston Building on our Collegiate Crescent Campushttp://www.shu.ac.uk/visit/plancollegiate.html. We have a fully equipped X-ray suite in the building which replicates the settings in which you learn and work. You spend half the course on clinical placements in large teaching hospitals, district general hospitals and specialist departments over a wide geographical area. As a student, your clinical experience will reflect the working times of radiographers. This may include weekends, evenings and, when you are nearing graduation, nights. As part of the course you complete a level 2 award in understanding health improvement, which provides you with a certificate from the Royal Society of Public Healthhttp://www.rsph.org.uk/. We are currently the only university in the UK that offers this as part of our healthcare courses. Your student membership fees for the Society and College of Radiographers are paid, enabling you to access the services they provide.
