The Master of Diagnostic Radiography (MDR) prepares graduates for clinical practice in the profession of diagnostic radiography with a commitment to life long learning and evidence based practice.
The course is a graduate-entry program (students are required to have completed an undergraduate degree prior to entry), however the MDR is designed to accommodate all suitably qualified candidates regardless of their previous discipline.
As the course leads to eligibility to practise, students will be assisted in achieving prescribed professional competencies through practical and theoretical skill acquisition and clinical placements. Clinical placements are undertaken in both the public and private sectors. Students will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of the career path they have chosen, and its place in the modern medical environment.
The pace of work in the MDR is commensurate with the expectations of postgraduate study, as is the level and complexity of the issues dealt with in the degree, including research project design.
