This five year combined degree training program in Medical Radiation Science (with specialisation in Medical Imaging or Nuclear Medicine) is offered in conjunction with Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Wagga Wagga NSW.
Students undertake the first two years of the Bachelor of Health Science in Launceston, including four units specific to medical radiation science, and then transfer for the next two years, undertaking 2nd and 3rd year subjects of the Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science (Medical Imaging or Nuclear Medicine) on campus at CSU.
In the fifth year students undertake workplace learning units in a radiology facility and two distance coursework units. Students will no longer be required to undertake a professional development year as it is now incorporated into the course. This course includes structured clinical practicums in appropriate medical imaging departments. The degree will provide a recognised professional qualification in radiography.
A quota of eight (8) students per intake is applied.
Special note: Charles Sturt University has increased the length of the course to four years. This means that UTas students will be required to undertake five years study (2 years at UTas, 2 years at CSU and 1 year workplace learning at a radiology facility).
