This programme will develop your skills in diagnostic imaging through applied thinking and doing, so you can safely use radiation to obtain images for diagnostic use.
The Bachelor of Health Science (Medical Imaging) provides you with the clinical and theoretical knowledge to work as a medical imaging technologist (MIT). To safely obtain images using radiation for diagnostic use, you need a sound understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathology, physics, and the medical radiation equipment and clinical techniques you will use in the industry. We'll help you develop these skills so you complete your degree confident and work-ready. You'll also get an introduction to more advanced imaging systems.
This programme includes over 2000 hours of work experience via clinical placements.
Accommodation and travel are not included as part of your fees, therefore you'll need to cover all costs associated with these (if necessary) in order to attend the clinic to which you have been assigned.
Once you've graduated, you'll have the option of pursuing a career in New Zealand, or overseas. If you are looking to work overseas as a qualified MIT, each country's registration body has its own system of determining eligibility. However, they all require hard copies of your course descriptors signed by the Academic Programme manager. There is an administration charge for requesting these.
