General Information


This final unit reinforces the theoretical and previous clinical units and ensures that, upon entry to the profession, students are well grounded in general radiography, as well as in special procedures, and have a comprehensive understanding of alternative imaging modalities. The professional performance of students will also be reinforced at the highest possible standard and they will be expected to work autonomously as far as their student licence allows. Continuing professional development, research and reflective practice will be reinforced. Students who successfully complete this unit will be professionally competent and eligible to become an accredited practitioner.
