Why study Master of Medical Radiations?

The Master of Medical Radiations (Radiation Therapy) offered by the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, is a two year, accelerated learning program with students undertaking comprehensive professional clinical experience as part of the course.

It enables students with a first degree in science or a related health discipline, to obtain a professional, entry level qualification at a postgraduate level of study. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for general registration as a Radiation Therapist from the Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia. Employment opportunities for graduates exist in both public and private health sectors, in metropolitan and regional Australia. This is the only distance learning graduate entry radiation therapy program offered in Australia and it may be available for interstate students to study in their home state.

Continuous clinical attachments are a key feature of the MMRRT and the clinical hours within this course, are greater than those within other entry to practice Radiation Therapy courses. Clinical placements are in large teaching hospitals and private practices to ensure students gain the best opportunities. In addition placements are available in rural settings and interstate.

Clinical placements numbers in each state vary from year to year and availability can be determined on application. Successful 2015 applicants could be qualified and nationally registered with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) to practise in those states by mid 2017.

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.
