Bachelor of Radiography and Medical Imaging
I’ve always been interested in the medical field, and for me Radiography was (and still is) the perfect balance of science and medicine, as it gives you the opportunity to be hands on and have contact with patients on a daily basis.
In the Bachelor of Radiography and Medical Imaging at Monash students undertake clinical placements each semester - starting in semester one of the first year. I’ve completed eight placement blocks throughout my studies - all at different clinical sites. Not only does this provide a genuine insight into what life will be like when qualified, it also allows us to work alongside industry partners and form professional relationships. I recently finished a six-month paid clinical rotation as part of my final year, and thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and opportunities that go hand-in-hand with being an employee of a large public hospital.
I was also fortunate enough to represent Monash at an international competition held in Taichung, Taiwan. This incredible experience enabled me to put the knowledge I gained at university into practice, all whilst meeting radiography students from all over the world and getting the opportunity to explore a new country.
