About Bone Densitometry Reporting at University of Derby

Studying this flexible Postgraduate Certificate in Bone Densitometry Reporting at Derby will:

  • Increase your knowledge in the fields of fracture prevention through osteoporosis diagnosis and management
  • Enable you to tailor your learning by choosing specific modules, so that you advance your knowledge in areas you're passionate about
  • Provide you with in-depth knowledge of DXA scanning and reporting. This Postgraduate Certificate also incorporates the University Certificate Continuing Professional Development in DXA Reporting for Clinicians
  • Engage you with an experienced and enthusiastic teaching team who are health care professionals. They have worked in a range of roles within the management of fracture risk, and inject this experience to their teaching.

During this course you'll develop your understanding of osteoporosis and the role of DXA within the management of fracture risk.

A breadth of knowledge

Knowledge in the fields of fracture management and DXA continues to expand and students require a broader evidence-base to support their practice, not just in the area of fracture management and DXA but in the additional skills required to develop and lead projects and services. Therefore, to support this additional breadth of knowledge and skills, the Postgraduate Certificate in Bone Densitometry Reporting is incorporated within the MSc Advanced Practice. This will provide students with increased opportunities to undertake a wider variety of modules appropriate for their professional development and clinical practice.

Advance your skills

We'll encourage you to use a systematic approach in both your theoretical appraisal of research and your reporting of bone mineral density results. You'll focus on patient management and develop the skills needed to work at an advanced practice level, recognising areas for change and improvement that will enhance your practice.

Professional support

Throughout this course you'll study with people from different professions, which will improve your understanding of osteoporosis and bone densitometry reporting across a wide range of health care settings.

It's important that you have the support of an appropriate mentor in your workplace before you starrat this course. Your mentor and our tutors will help you to produce diagnostic reports that will inform the management and care of your patients.

We're proud to say that our courses are closely mapped against the health and social care sector. This ensures that our curriculum is up-to-date, providing you with the assurance that your learning is current and relevant. This does mean that we do have to respond to national changes such as government policy.

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”
