All details in this unit profile for MEDI12004 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.
General Information


During this work integrated learning placement you will apply the knowledge and skills previously developed in the pre-clinical simulation environment. Placed within radiology departments or clinics, you will work under the guidance and mentorship of clinical radiographers to perform radiography in a professional and effective manner and become a useful member of the imaging team. As this is your first block placement, your performance focus will be on general radiography examinations of non-complex patients. You will undergo performance assessments on imaging examinations previously learned in the academic environment. You will also be assessed on your professional behaviours and attributes. Reflective practice will assist you in developing your skills throughout this unit.

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Coordinator reflection and discussion within the Medical Imaging teaching team


Only 26 of the 46 students watched the pre-clinical recorded information. This left 20 students without the preparation and support of the pre-clinical session, which previously has been found to be beneficial.


Return to face to face pre-clinical information sessions so that all students engage with the preparation and support prior to going out on their first clinical placement.
