INTERNSHIPS and WORK PLACEMENT
A very unique and important aspect of the Clinical Photography degree is the Work Placement component, which accounts for 500 hours in total throughout the three years. More than 350 hours of placement are carried out in selected NHS hospitals (9 weeks in total) that have quality controlled medical photography departments, where students have the opportunity to practice in various specializations.
The large number of work placement hours ensures, not only the intensive preparation of the students to work in hospital environments, but also provides direct contact with department directors and professionals who are potential employers. The Institute of Medical Illustrators (IMI), the professional body associated with medical photography and illustration, has been encouraging its members to place our students in their departments.
A few examples of hospitals where our student are placed during their studies:
Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust (London)
Moorfields London Eye Hospital (London)
UCL Institute of Child Health / GOSH (London)
UCL Medical School / Royal Free Hospital (London)
