so i got an atar of 97 and got an offer for usyd pharmacy but after some thinking i’ve been really considering doing diagnostic radiography at usyd, what are my chances of getting an offer? and if anyone has opinions on pharmacy vs radiography in terms of careers pls help me out!!
ultimately I don’t want to be stuck only in community pharmacy and feel like i’d prefer a hospital environment
Looking for a career change and was wondering Out of X-ray, mammography, CT scan, and MRI Which is the easier one to become?
-Please let me know your opinions on this question, both in terms of schooling and in terms of working conditions. Thanks in advance
I am finishing up my college degree, I have 1 credit left till I get my AA but still have to take other classes to transfer or get accepted into a program. I'm looking at radiography program although it goes against my degree since I should be able to land a job afterwards, it pays decent, and it's said to be a very enjoyed professional. Another option I have is attempting to transfer to a university for marine biology or microbiology and cell science. I don't necessarily want to get my masters although if need be, I will. The student debt scares me because the difference between state college or university is a bit. Especially if I wanna do it in person. I've always paid out of pocket for school, my parents didn't qualify to receive aid. So it's taken me till 23 to finish it. I'm interested in microbiology and cell science because it's so interesting to learn about and marine biology is something I enjoy as I love the ocean, have been wanting to get into scubing, and would love a career that allows me to embrace that. But both of these degrees can be seen as useless once I'm done and I won't be able to get a job. I think that's my biggest fear with it. Is getting the degree then having to work something that's outside my degree to scrape by with a whole lot of student debt. My college GPA is 3.5.
I got an offer into med sci at UNSW on the 13th of Jan and I enrolled in some courses.... today, I got an offer in Bachelor of Applied Science (Diagnostic Radiography). I like both of the courses and the units I looked into are very interesting... I just wanna know which one is better in terms of job prospects.
thank you in advance
So I’m kind of getting nervous as the day our atars get released gets closer. My first preference is currently radiography at the university of Sydney (usyd). However, me attaining an atar above 96 is hopefully doable (hopefully not wishful thinking) will be tight for me (but who knows?). I was just wondering if say I don’t get above 96 is there any chance that I can still do the course?
Also, current student could you also tell me how the course is? Pros and cons (yes, I have done my research, but any information about the course will be greatly appreciated).
Lastly, I really want to do radiography and I don’t really have a plan b. Does anyone know or recommend any other courses that you would think I would be interested in if I want to pursue a career in radiography?
Thanks for reading, and any help is greatly appreciated.
My profession doesn’t seem to exist on TV ( Im looking at you Greys Anatomy) and don’t get me wrong, Nurses are awesome, but us Radiology Techs need some love too!
So today i went to the doctor to examin my dog and apparently he has osteosarcoma..
My vet medicate some meds to him bc it has a little chance of being just an infection.
But its probably a cancer, so he probably has 4 to 6 months more of life
Thank you everyone for your support and your kind mesages.
Hi everyone! I'm in the first year of a radiography program, and for an assignment I need to ask a few question to a fellow radiography student who is currently doing their clinicals. I would really appreciate if anyone (literally just one, haha) could take the time to answer a few brief questions. You don't have to answer all of them - feel free to pick and choose which ones you want to answer.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to anyone who responds!
I feel like I chose the wrong career path, but I don't see myself doing anything else. I'm too awkward and shy, and everyone keeps telling me that I need to learn how to speak up. I don't know if I'm doing my best at clinical. I try to help the best I can, but I feel like I shouldn't be there. When it's not busy, and there isn’t much to do, I just study, but I feel like that's not enough. I don't know what I'm doing. I'm not confident enough, and I feel so lost and confused. Many people say to treat clinical like a job interview, but I'm not sure how. Any advice?
Does anyone in this sub reddit study a master of diagnostic radiography? I’d love to Know what the structure of the semesters is like and how intense the work is. I’m starting 21st Feb
So I'm applying for this course but apparently it's not accredited by AHPRA - is that problematic? Also, any past graduates here; if you could share your experiences with this degree (in terms of structure, delivery and resources and also in terms of recognition and employability) or on what further studies you undertook after this course, that would be super neat.
Currently I am trying to get a degree for Nuclear Med. Technologist. Right now I’m doing the pre-qualifying courses like chemistry, physics, etc. I’ve read only it might be easier to do Radiography first before getting a Bachelors in Nuclear. Med. Any thoughts? I’m in a 4 year university but don’t want to transfer out….even though it might be easier to do a community college for Radiology.
Just received an unconditional offer to start next year! Does anyone have any insight into what it's like?
I'm mostly curious about how physics heavy the content is. This subject was never my strong point so I'm a little concerned about how I'd cope.
I mostly have trouble interpreting bitewings, PA's etc. I was wondering if anyone knew of some good interactive websites to learn more/practice? Thanks!
Hello. I am a 43-year-old professional musician who recently went back to school for radiologic technology (X-ray tech). If all goes as planned, I will graduate in 2023 with an Associates Degree in Health Sciences and certification as a Radiologic Technologist through ARRT. My ultimate goal is to obtain a critical skills visa and land a job in Ireland. I would like to live in Ireland permanently with hopes of becoming a citizen before I die. My great-grandparents emigrated from County Derry in the late 1800s. I did the whole Ancestry DNA thing a few years ago and was able to meet and connect with some third cousins and other distant relatives in the north of Ireland and Scotland. It was an utterly mind blowing experience. In total I have traveled to Ireland about seven or eight times and have also played music all over the island. I have a handful of friends and connections in Dublin and a few other places. Is there anyone here who has immigrated from the USA to Ireland? If so, I would love to hear about your experience. Also, if there is anyone working in the field of Radiography in Ireland I’d love to know if you have any tips or advice to guide my path. I’ve looked at the CORA website and it seems like there would maybe be a chance of making this happen but I’m sure there will be a lot of challenges along the way. Thanks in advance!
Hello whoever is reading this post, I am taking a Professions of Caring class this semester and I have an assignment where I need to interview an individual that is a Radiologic Technologist/Technician or a Cardiovascular Technologist/Technician (these are the two careers I picked to research for my project this semester).
Ideally I would want to pursue a career in Diagnostic Sonography, but the program at my school is quite competitive so I wanted to research other careers as a fall-back plan.
I have a set of 12 questions (some have follow-ups) that I need to ask for the interview assignment.
If you are interested in being interviewed, please reply back to me as soon as you can! We can even conduct the interview through a chat/messaging platform if that is easier for you.
Thanks so much!
Since the required ATAR is much higher than my estimated ATAR (85-91), are there any relevant courses I could do and later transfer to Bachelor of Radiography and Medical Imaging?
Thanks in advance!
Hey guys, just wanted to post here as I'm looking at some potential guidance.
For context - I'm 28 and have been working in healthcare as a wardsperson for 8 years. I don't have much in the way of post highschool education in any of the major disciplines due to learning impairments which I now have under control with medication and therapy. I am a quick learner and am willing to take on supplementary courses to get where I need to be.
I have been looking at studying Diagnostic Radiography or Nuclear Medicine as it seems like a natural progression for me in the field as it's an environment I am familiar with in some aspects (interacting with patients, the hierarchy, what goes where etc) what I'm mainly conscious of is the concepts I need to grasp in terms of chemistry/physics and what the requirements are to enter the course, and what the job prospects are like post graduation as I understand it's fairly competitive. I also would love to know what the placements are like in terms of time invested and what I should expect.
If you have any information or helpful input on this, I would greatly appreciate your time :)
