During this clinical unit you will apply the knowledge and skills previously learned to the clinical environment. Placed within radiology departments or clinics, you will work beside clinical radiographers to provide imaging services in a professional and effective manner. Performance assessments will focus on imaging procedures previously learned in the academic environment. You will use your knowledge of image evaluation to critique your images and suggest methods for improvement. Reflective practice will assist you in developing your skills and professional behaviour throughout this unit.
