What will I learn?

The degree will lead you to a career as a radiographer (also known as a medical imaging technologist) where you will use techniques such as X-ray, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to produce high-quality images which are then used by medical specialists to diagnose, manage and treat an injury or disease.

The honours component is embedded within the program and will provide you with a strong foundation in research and critical thinking which will assist you as you enter contemporary evidence-based clinical practice. You will study a series of topics in preparation for a research project which is part of your final year studies, along with advanced imaging and professional practice placements.

Supervised clinical experience forms a major component of the program and you will spend over fifty weeks in a range of imaging facilities from first year through to fourth year. Placements are offered across public and private hospitals and suburban sites throughout Queensland and in some interstate facilities. You will attend a variety of sites and these varying environments will allow you to experience patients with different case histories and diverse cultural backgrounds.
