Training Requirements for the Specialty of Nuclear Medicine

During the Council of the UEMS held in Tel-Aviv April 26-28, the Training Requirements for the Specialty of Nuclear Medicine was discussed and officially endorsed.

Find in the below link the effectual Training Requirements for the Speciality of Nuclear Medicine.

This document derives from the previous Chapter 6 of the Training Charter and provides definitions of specialist competencies and procedures as well as how to document and assess them. It aims to provide the training requirements not only for trainees, but also for trainers and training institutions.

Compared with the previous version, hybrid imaging is now fully integrated in the content of training with regard to both the theoretical knowledge and the practical and clinical skills. The document also contains appendices that list the nuclear medicine diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed in the European Union.

New MSc Programmes Consultation

The Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) programme has developed new MSc programmes to support the delivery of the Healthcare Scientist Training Programme.

The 2010 / 2011 version of the Medical Physics MSc Learning Outcomes and Indicative content is available to view and download on http://www.networks.nhs.uk/nhs-networks/msc-framework-curricula/documents/MSc%20Medical%20Physics%202010-11.pdf

All seven MSc programmes have been made available for 2011 commissioning purposes and are now available to view and download on NHS Networks Framework

This work has been led by the Professional Advisers in the Department of Health MSC team and has benefited from extensive professional and NHS involvement. Colleagues from your Professional Body may have been involved in the development of the programmes and in addition may also have sought comments from other colleagues and/or one of your committees.

The Education and Training Working Group of the Medical Education England Healthcare Science Programme Board, which provides professional advice on education and training issues to the Secretary of State and his advisors in DH, has reviewed and commented on the MSc Learning Outcomes and Indicative content for the Scientist Training Programme.

The ETWG has formally requested the BNMS's comments on the STP MSc Learning Outcomes and indicative content, which the MEE ETWG would be pleased to consider during their next meeting.

If you have any comments that you would like to make please send them to us at office@bnms.org.uk before 21st April 2011.
