Karis Vercoe


I began my Radiography journey through the University of Cumbria where I gained a BSc (Hons) in Diagnostic Radiography. During that time, I trained at East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust. Once qualified, I undertook a position as a Paediatric Diagnostic Radiographer at Manchester Children's Hospital. I joined the University of Leeds in 2022 as a Teaching Assistant, primarily developing and teaching at the Radigraphy Clinical Skills Facility. This clinical placement facility delivers blended-teaching through live-patient imaging of patients, simulation and a wide-range of other relevant activities developed by me and collaborators for all 3 year groups. I also contribute to Professional Practice (1 & 3), Paediatrics (Undergraduate & MA) and Application of Imaging modules. Whilst at the University, I gained FHEA and went on to become a Lecturer in Diagnostic Radiography.
