All about the course

Completed alongside our Principles of Advanced Practice and Core Skills for Chest Reporting modules, ACR allows you to develop your skills to become competent in pattern recognition and image interpretation of the adult chest. The module will allow you to be able to effectively formulate diagnoses and communicate your reports both verbally and in writing.

You will have the support of a personal tutor who holds a post graduate qualification in chest reporting.

Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
