CSU's Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge and professional skills necessary to practise as a qualified medical radiation scientist.

  • Why study this course?

    There is an increasing demand for highly educated and adaptable medical radiation science professionals in response to the aging population and organic growth of the industry (medical imaging, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine). There has also been an evolution in the medical radiation sciences to a more integrative model where the boundaries between one discipline and the next are increasingly less defined. CSU's Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science is designed to anticipate industry demands and is in a unique position to offer graduates a competitive advantage in the employment market.

    The equipment used by medical radiation scientists has become increasingly sophisticated in the past decade and a comprehensive knowledge of equipment function, operation and computer interfacing is required. With an emphasis on the techniques and equipment used in diagnostic radiography, nuclear medicine and in other imaging modalities (such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET)), this course will provide a rewarding and fulfilling career for people interested in a technically-oriented healthcare field.

    Students at Port Macquarie Campus can select the Medical Imaging or Nuclear Medicine specialisations only.

    This course offers the following specialisations:

    Medical Imaging

    The field of medical imaging, also known as diagnostic radiography, demands a high degree of academic study, as well as clinical expertise in routine and advanced medical imaging procedures. As a radiographer, you will be concerned with producing high-quality medical images of the human body for medical diagnosis through the operation of specialist equipment, such as administering ionising radiation (x-rays), or MRI pulses to the patient. You will also be responsible for the care and welfare of your patients and will seek to minimise their radiation exposure.

    Nuclear Medicine

    The nuclear medicine scientist/technologist enjoys a challenging and varied career working in public or private nuclear medicine practices. The training undertaken in this course involves biological tracers (radiopharmaceuticals) that are used for the diagnosis and treatment of various diseases. This specialisation details the administration and imaging of these radiopharmaceuticals within the patient to detect physiological abnormalities and deliver appropriate treatment. This specialisation requires formal training and education in clinical, instrumentation and computing aspects of single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), PET, CT, MRI, ultrasound and newer hybrid systems (SPECT/CT and PET/CT).

    Radiation Therapy

    The profession of radiation therapy involves the design and delivery of radiation treatment plans for people diagnosed with cancer and other pathological conditions. High academic knowledge and clinical skills are needed to ensure quality patient treatments. As a radiation therapist you will develop radiation therapy treatment plans tailored specifically for each patient's condition, work as part of a team to ensure the accurate, safe delivery of radiation to treat the patient, and be involved in the care and wellbeing of people diagnosed with cancer and other pathological conditions.

    Learning Facilities

    To make sure you are experienced in using the equipment and techniques found in the workplace, our facilities include:

    • CR units
    • a clinical ultrasound machine
    • Philips PRISM 1000 Gamma camera and multiple Odyssey VP/FX/LX computers
    • Vita medical technegas ventilation equipment
    • GE 400AC SPECT Gamma Camera and camstar computer
    • Fully equipped radiopharmacy laboratory
    • ADAC - Sun Sparc Ultra - 10 interfaced computer system for image analysis.
    Professionals teaching you

    The clinical and technical aspects of the course are taught by dedicated professionals with years of collective industry experience. Fundamental areas of the course are complemented by experienced physicists and anatomists/physiologists with a deep understanding of the needs of clinical medical imaging and nuclear medicine.

  • Career opportunities
    Medical Imaging Specialisation

    Graduates work as diagnostic radiographers / medical imaging technologists either in public hospitals or private radiology practices in any state of Australia. Graduates can also apply to work in any country. Graduates will be eligible to register with the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA).

    Nuclear Medicine specialisation

    Graduates work as nuclear medicine scientists either in public hospitals or private nuclear medicine practices in any state of Australia. Graduates can also apply to work in any country. Graduates will be eligible to register with the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA).

    Radiation Therapy specialisation

    Graduates of the Radiation Therapy specialisation may find employment as radiation therapists in public hospitals or private radiation oncology practices in any state of Australia, as well as overseas. Career options may also include specialisation in areas such as tomotherapy and IMRT. CSU is seeking accreditation of this course so that graduates will be eligible to register with the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA).

  • Workplace learning

    Clinical studies are an essential element of the course. Many clinical skills are gained and enhanced by practising in the clinical workplace through our clinical placement scheme.

    Over the four years of academic study, medical radiation science students will be required to undertake 64 weeks of clinical placement (including a fourth year residency). The extent of clinical experience is required to ensure students gain the equivalent experience of the traditional professional development year (PDY) within their undergraduate studies. Students graduate with a 'job ready' status, eligibility for full (rather than interim) accreditation and a competitive advantage in the employment market.

    Travel, accommodation and any other costs associated with clinical studies are the responsibility of the student.

    The Bachelor of Medical Radiation Science involves physical demands on students, particularly in clinical placements. These demands include lifting of patients and equipment, moving equipment, standing and walking for most of the working day and looking at monitor screens and bright light x-ray viewing boxes.

    Any students who believe that they may have difficulty with these requirements are advised to contact the Course Coordinator or Student Equity Officer via info.csu on 1800 334 733 before enrolling.

    Please note: students are required to have a current First Aid Certificate to go on work placements.

    Immunisation

    NSW Health is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all clients in health care settings and providing a safe and healthy working  environment for all staff and other clinical personnel, including students  undertaking workplace learning. This commitment includes adopting an assessment, screening and vaccination policy Occupational Assessment, Screening and Vaccination Against Specific Infectious Diseases (PD2011_005) that minimises the risk of acquiring infectious diseases. Compliance with this  policy is mandatory for all health facility staff, including students on clinical placement.

    Students must comply with NSW Health immunisation and vaccination requirements and be verified prior to being allocated to a workplace learning facility. This applies to all students regardless of state or territory. All students must undergo vaccination against infectious diseases prior to being allocated to a facility within NSW or other states. Results of these vaccinations are kept on a  personal record card (available from the School through which the student is  studying). This card must be presented, upon request, by NSW Health, or other health facility staff, whilst the student is attending workplace learning.

    The Policy requires that you consult your local doctor to  obtain written proof of protection against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis,  measles, mumps, rubella, varicella and hepatitis B.

    NOTE: It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the requirements of this policy have been met, and failure to comply with the requirements may jeopardise completion of your studies.

    As a full course of vaccinations may take several months to complete, you are advised to consult your local medical practitioner well in  advance of the commencement of your studies.

    PLEASE NOTE that, as many courses involve workplace learning in the first year of study, the hepatitis B immunisation should be commenced early to meet NSW Health requirements.

    Further information is available from NSW Health.

    • SSS024 - Grammar Essentials for Writing at University
    • SSS030 - Academic English for Australian Tertiary Studies (International and English as Second Language Learners)
    • SSS031 - Academic Writing Skills (F2F Workshop)
    • SSS034 - Essay Writing – Style and Structure
    These subjects are particularly useful for those people who feel that they may have knowledge gaps and need a refresher because they have not studied for some time. STUDY LINK subjects are free for CSU Commonwealth-supported students as soon as they accept their offer of a place; small fees apply for others. They are non-credit bearing subjects.  A Subject Coordinator assists students with any questions. The full subject list and enrolment forms are on the STUDY LINK website.
  • Academic expectations

    For each 8 point subject at CSU, students should normally expect to spend between 140-160 hours engaged in the specified learning and assessment activities (such as attending lectures or residential schools, assigned readings, tutorial assistance, individual or group research/study, forum activity, workplace learning, assignments or examinations). The student workload for some subjects may vary from these norms as a result of approved course design.

    Students will be assessed on the basis of completed assignments, examinations, workplace learning, or other methods as outlined in specific subject outlines.

    Where applicable, students are responsible for travel and accommodation costs involved in workplace learning experiences, or attending residential schools (distance education students).

    Expectations relating to academic, workplace learning, time and cost requirements for specific subjects are provided in the subject abstracts and in course materials.

    Throughout their studies, CSU students have a responsibility to continue to develop skills in English Language, literacy and numeracy as appropriate to their discipline. This ongoing development will enable students to effectively participate in their course and graduate as competent professionals.
