Students are required to have a knowledge of human anatomy,biochemistry and physiology. The academic suitability of such knowledge for this module, in the case of students who are not registered diagnostic imaging students, will be decided by the module coordinator and potential students interested in taking this module as a general elective should discuss this with the module co-ordinator.
Students who are not registered diagnostic imaging students will be required to sign a written commitment to confidentiality relating to patient histories and respective pathological findings.
