    Hello All

    I was hoping some of you may be able to provide some advice. Currently I am doing some masters modules about to start my 3rd this September in biomechanics msk. What I would like to know is in applying for future jobs is there really much difference between a pg dip and a full masters from an employer perspective?

    I do plan to do the injections via ultrasound in Bournemouth but I don't want to do this till after the above.

    Thank you for any responses in advance

    Hi sdrpod
    In terms of NHS employment, most of Band 7 posts/job descriptions state "Masters level qualifications" as an essential point. You could interpret that as having a PgCert, PgDip or full MSc. Having done it myself, I would recommend finishing the whole thing if you are able. Totally worth it. Good luck!
