Modern healthcare without medical imaging? Unthinkable. Medical imaging is a vital diagnostic tool: x-rays, mammograms, ultrasound or computed tomography images all help diagnose patients' injuries and diseases. But applying the appropriate medical imaging procedure for each patient requires skill. Which is why diagnostic medical radiation technologists (MRTs) are highly sought after, and not just in New Zealand.
Graduates who hit the ground running are the best way to meet this demand. That's why Bachelor of Health Science students spend at least two days a week in clinical practice in a radiology facility. It's a great way to apply what you've learnt in the classroom, and an unmissable networking opportunity.
Hands-on learning and flexibility are two of the reasons that make us a leading medical imaging education provider for undergraduate students. Strong links with the industry, and experienced and highly qualified staff are two more. They're all reasons why our Bachelor programmes are endorsed by the Medical Radiation Technologists Board and recognised internationally.
Once you're a qualified MRT you can take your career that step further. Our postgraduate programmes and professional development courses are designed in partnership with clinical colleagues to ensure they meet current clinical need. We offer flexible study options to enable you to take your career to the next level and to equip yourself for future practice.
We are currently reviewing our postgraduate portfolio of programmes and making some exciting changes. Check back for the latest updates, or contact the programme team to see what the future holds.
