Purpose: This paper evaluates whether the revalidated Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) programme encourages independent learning by its curriculum design, delivery and assessment.
Results: Evidence regarding the promotion of independent learning was gained from learners and external examiners. The scientific publications, presentations and posters that the learners contributed in the professional arena during or subsequent to programme completion were seen as indicators of independent learning, as this lay beyond the remit of the course.
Conclusion: The ethos of the programme to promote independent learning has been successful.
