Mentoring mammography students

Course date:

  • Friday 9 September 2022, 9am to 11am via MS Teams

Price: Free of charge for mentors of current King's/London South Bank University (LSBU) mammography students. £60 for other delegates.

This short course will provide an overview of the King's/LSBU mammography training pathway and workshop assessment methods, teaching and learning strategies, giving feedback and a group discussion on training challenges and how to overcome them.

Mammography Clinical attachments

Clinical attachments take place in King’s Breast Radiology Department. They are not training courses but are aimed at health professionals who want to learn more about the latest practices in breast radiology. They are open to UK and overseas applicants and placements may be limited to a maximum of two weeks, depending on capacity.

As there are strict candidate requirements, requests for attachments must be made as far in advance as possible to enable all procedures to be completed before the start date.

We are currently not taking any bookings for clinical attachments for the duration of 2022.

Contact our Training Centre for more information.

Mammography Clinical Update Training

Mammography Clinical Update Training is currently being offered remotely, rather than in person. The remote programme is endorsed by the College of Radiographers and is delivered in stages, removing the need for mammographers to take significant time out of their daily duties or for clinics to be cancelled to accommodate the update.

Contact our Training Centre for more information.

Fees

Prices vary dependent on the options chosen, starting at £150 per mammographer.
