Teaching

  • PMAM00 Diagnosis and Assessment of Autism and Related Conditions

    This module will explore the various approaches to diagnose Autism and related conditions from the medical, social and educational aspects. It will build upon the neurobiology involved in Autism, evaluate different assessment techniques and related them to the Statement of Need process. It will further explore the evidence base for the various diagnostic and assessment procedures in relation to service provision and planning.

  • PMAM01 Living with Autism and Related Conditions

    This module will explore the history of autism to inform how people lived with autism (including parents and carers) previously to the present day, debate the use of diet controls, critically review the impact of autism (pre- and post- diagnosis) upon the individual and family, explore the issue of parental stress, discuss how our understanding of the impact of autism can have an input into service planning and delivery, appraising integrated services and the influence of policy changes on the support provided (clinically, socially and educationally).

  • PMAM06 Work Based Portfolio

    This module will allow students to review, appraise and evaluate the application of the knowledge gained throughout the programme within their own professional work environment by providing a portfolio of evidence that is supported by a reflective commentary.

  • PMNM03 Physiology and Disease

    This module will explore the various aspects of each physiological system in the human body to describe the normal functioning of these systems and to relate this to common pathologies from a diagnostic, assessment and management perspective. The main organ systems that will be examined are the Nervous System, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Endocrine System, Renal System, Musculoskeletal System, Gastro-intestinal and Urinary Systems.

  • PMRM00 Introduction to the practice of Medical Physicists & Clinical Engineers in Health Care

    Provides a broad-based overview of the Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering discipline.

  • PMRM03 Research Leadership and Project Management

    This module explores the concepts, principles and applications of various approaches to research leadership and project management. This module focuses on analysing, identifying and developing personal qualities and strategies relating to research leadership. Through engagement in a range of activities aimed at developing self-awareness and insight, reflection, group skills and communication skills, students will be able to determine a personal development plan relating to continuing development in research leadership and project management.

  • PMRM04 Dissertation (Research)

    This module builds on the knowledge and skills developed in teaching components in part one of their relevent programme. Students will work independently in order to critically explore and add to the evidence base for a topic of relevance to their area of study.

  • PMRM07 Critical Appraisal and Evaluation (PT Research Only)

    This module will explore the key concepts and topics that are related to the research process from defining evidence based practice, reviewing the literature (systematic and narrative), formulating research questions, critical appraisal frameworks, research design (quantitative and qualitative), clinical audit and introduce the students to the application of data analysis.

  • PMZM11 Research leadership and project management

    This module explores the concepts, principles and applications of various approaches to research leadership and project management. This module focuses on analysing, identifying and developing personal qualities and strategies relating to research leadership. Through engagement in a range of activities aimed at developing self-awareness and insight, reflection, group skills and communication skills, students will be able to determine a personal development plan relating to continuing development in research leadership and project management.

  • PMZM14 Physiology and Disease

    This module will explore the various aspects of each physiological system in the human body to describe the normal functioning of these systems and to relate this to common pathologies from a diagnostic, assessment and management perspective. The main organ systems that will be examined are the Nervous System, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Endocrine System, Renal System, Musculoskeletal System, Gastro-intestinal and Urinary Systems.
