Rapid technological advances in these areas mean that the medical imaging and radiation-therapy sector is continuing to expand. This course comprises foundation studies required for medical radiation science practice � including medical physics, anatomy, physiology and evidence-based practice � and a combination of subjects from science and health sciences that will give you a grounding in the healthcare environment. The first year is interprofessional and taken with other health sciences and science students. From second year, you will specialise in one of two majors: Medical Imaging or Radiation Therapy. You�ll develop the ethical, medico-legal, cultural awareness and communication abilities needed to take responsibility for the care of individual patients. You�ll undertake 45 weeks of clinical experience during the course, in hospitals, private practices and rural and regional sites. This course is highly competitive and has limited places due to clinical placement requirements.
