MEDI13005 - Medical Imaging Clinical Course 3

General Information

Unit Synopsis

During this clinical unit you will apply and expand on knowledge and skills previously learned both at school and during your previous placements. You will further develop your skills in general radiography and also in specialised procedures such as fluoroscopy, computed tomography, theatre and mobile imaging. You will further develop your decision-making skills and use your knowledge of image evaluation to assess images from a wide range of procedures for technical sufficiency. You will use reflective practice to assist in your development as an imaging professional. At all times you will work within the profession's Code of Conduct and your scope of practice.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 18-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 37.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 450 hours for the unit.

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

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.

Source: Student evaluation
Feedback
Fast feedback and support by the unit coordinator was appreciated by students
Recommendation
Maintain support and continue to offer feedback in a timely manner
Action Taken
Students continued to receive a high level of support via communication from teaching staff with prompt assessment submission feedback and email replies.
Source: Student evaluation
Feedback
Students appreciated clarity of structure and information offered.
Recommendation
Maintain the clear structure of the Moodle site and ensure all information is accurate and explicit.
Action Taken
The layout of the Moodle site with explicit instructions on each unit activity was maintained.
Source: Student Survey & Unit Coordinator reflection
Feedback
The timing for student assessment items varied greatly for each student due to the impact of COVID-19 and therefore the students' 11-week clinical placements were spread over a 7-month period, with some students' placements split into two separate blocks occurring over the 7-month period. This impacted the use of forum posting and emailed global friendly reminders to students of the assessment due dates. This is in addition to clear posted statements throughout the Moodle site of due dates relative to placement weeks.
Recommendation
Encourage students to use the unit profile's weekly schedule for assessment due date listings relative to placement weeks.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Site supervisor feedback
Feedback
The Global Assessment of Professional Attributes (GAPA) assessment tool is an excellent holistic representation of the behaviours required of a medical imaging student during their clinical placements.
Recommendation
Continue to maintain the use of the GAPA assessment tool at regular intervals during the clinical placement unit, providing the student with accurate and on-going feedback on their professional performance.
Action Taken
Nil.
