Medical imaging provides an essential diagnostic approach to the medical field. Common imaging types include x-ray, CT, MRI, mammography and ultrasound, which significantly improve the patient’s healthcare quality. I feel proud of becoming a healthcare provider.
The diagnostic radiography course is geared towards developing our hands-on experience. After each lecture, we have a relative practical class that follows, which further strengthens our clinical skills.
The course provides lots of placement opportunities in various clinical settings, including rural, metropolitan, private or public hospital settings, which ensures students are equipped with experience in all areas, and so become an all-rounded radiographer.
USYD actually provides lots of resources for the health students to get enough practice. We can freely use the x-ray or ultrasound machine to practice.
Cherish each practical class that you’ve been allocated. Jump out of your comfort zone and prepare early, don’t cram for the exam as there is a lot of content.
