Why study Master of Medical Radiations?

If you're a suitably qualified graduate, this intensive, off-campus, practised-based course will give you the skills you need for accelerated entry into the medical radiations professions.

It's the only distance-learning course of its type in Australia and includes up to 62 weeks of clinical placements - more than any other similar Australian degree.

In 2014 the radiation therapy places includes clinical placements in Victoria, along with Interstate placements agreements that are well established in Western Australia, Tasmania and Queensland.

Clinical placements numbers vary from year to year and availability can be determined on application. Applicants could be qualified and nationally registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) to practise in those states by 2016.

This fast tracking to a specialist career is possible because you study three semesters, including a summer semester, each year.

Work integrated learning is supported by underpinning academic knowledge and clinical competency is monitored and assessed through the University.

The course is fully supported by our extensive online resources and teaching staff. It's provided through our research-focused Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, giving you exposure to the most up-to-date practices and knowledge.
