Joe attended Swansea University, graduating in 2015 with a First Class Honours Degree in BSc (Hons.) Clinical Technology. He has also completed a Master’s degree from The University of Oxford in Radiation Biology. Joe has worked in the NHS as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist, before moving to Swansea University to Lecture in Medical Physics Technology.

Whilst at The University of Oxford Joe presented a poster about the ‘Development of a Kinetic Model of I-131 Treatment for Thyroid Cancer’ (2016)

    This is an introductory module for students following medical physics technology programmes into non-ionising radiation and detector systems.

  • SHC342 Clinical Indication, Pathology and Patient Care

    A module designed to provide the medical physics technology student with the knowledge to support practice.

  • SHC343 Physics and Instrumentation

    This module provides students with the knowledge base to underpin the practice of nuclear medicine with emphasis on imaging and radionuclide assay.

  • SHC344 Radiobiology and Clinical Radiotherapy Physics

    This module will provide the student with the underpinning knowledge to support radiotherapy practice.

  • SHC345 Practice of Radiotherapy Physics

    This module provides the student with the underpinning knowledge required to critically select and use radiotherapy equipment in patient treatment.

  • SHC346 Framework of Radiation Governance and Risk Management

    The module follows on from modules in years one and two of the programme. The module is designed to equip the student with a high level body of knowledge that will enable them to function as a professional practitioner in the field of Radiation Physics following graduation, by providing the student with an understanding of the main sources of ionising and non-ionising radiation encountered in the clinical environment, the legislative and organizational framework surrounding their use and the principles of risk assessment and risk management. The subject matter will focus on principles of radiation protection, sources of radiation, dosimetry and risk assessment.

  • SHC347 Practice of Radiation Physics

    The module aims to consolidate and further develop the knowledge and skills gained in years 1 and 2 of the programme to the high level that will equip students with the knowledge and skills required to function as professional practitioners in the field of radiation physics following graduation, by equipping the student with an understanding of the performance testing of a wide range of equipment, measurement of patient doses, dose optimization and audit of radiation departments. The subject matter will focus on performance testing, dose measurement and optimization and audit of radiation departments.
