Media Resources Centre - Education and Training

The Education and Training section of the Media Resources Centre has two functions. The first being the delivery of the Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) in Medical Illustration through the Department of Medical Illustration within the School of Healthcare Studies, Heath Park Campus. Secondly, the Programme Manager for the PgCert in Medical Illustration also operates staff development within the Media Resources Centre.

Annually the Media Resources Centre employs two Trainee Clinical Photographers on a two year fixed-term contract funded by the Welsh Assembly Government. The trainees receive on-job training in conjunction with undertaking the PgCert in Medical Illustration, which is also available to other practising medical illustrators in the UK and is delivered through distance learning. Full details can be found on the PgCert in Medical Illustration web page.

If you require further information about the PgCert in Medical Illustration, or you are looking for careers advice on becoming a medical illustrator, please contact:
