Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:
- Access the most advanced range of magnetic resonance instrumentation in the Southern Hemisphere.
- Apply your knowledge and skills during a week-long on-campus practical immersion.
- Be eligible for Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy continuing professional development (CPD) points accrual.
- Organise your study around professional and personal commitments, with all courses in this program able to be completed online.
- Magnetic resonance technologist
- Image processor
- Magnetic resonance imaging physicist
- Biomedical researcher
- Senior radiographer
To be eligible for entry, you'll need:
- a bachelor's degree (or equivalent) in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, medical imaging, medical radiation, radiography, allied health, biomedical engineering, engineering, computer science, or an approved discipline, or
- a graduate certificate or graduate diploma in magnetic resonance technology.
Applications on the basis of post-secondary study and two years work experience in a related field will be individually assessed.
You must have a grade point average (GPA) of 4.0 on a 7-point scale in your previous qualification.
English Proficiency Requirements
All applicants must satisfy the UQ English language proficiency requirements for admission.
If you've completed previous study, you may be eligible to receive credit for – or exemption from – certain subjects in a UQ program. Assessment of prior learning and the granting of credit or exemption will be consistent with the Recognition of Prior Learning Policy (limits in section 2.4).
This program allows students with some experience in magnetic resonance to acquire advanced knowledge. Students are trained in new techniques which are not yet part of standard clinical practice. Students will be in a position to embark on projects that make innovative use of magnetic resonance; to assess the impact of such innovation on the clinical utility of the modality; and to assess the needs of a radiography practice, and the ability of equipment from various manufacturers to meet these needs. The program consists of core courses, electives and a research component.
For students studying via flexible delivery, access to a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner is required for the research component of this program.
