Programme Aims & Learning Outcomes
We provide a challenging and relevant education in radiography that encompasses both medical imaging and radiation therapy.
An enquiring, analytical and creative approach to learning is encouraged to develop the clinical reasoning skills that are necessary for competent and responsible professionals.
Our programme produces graduates who have the ethical and professional abilities that are necessary to become caring practitioners who are capable of professional development and wider community responsibilities.
Our student-centred learning approach encourages independence in learning so that graduates can maintain relevance in a dynamic profession.
This programme comprises academic and clinical components.
Collaboration with universities in the Chinese mainland and overseas provides student exchange opportunities.
Graduates are eligible for registration on Part Two of the Register of the Radiographers Board of Hong Kong. They are also recognised by many overseas registration bodies including those in Britain, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia (after gaining 1 year of clinical experience).
Our graduates find employment with the Hospital Authority, which recognises the degree as an entry qualification.
Opportunities are also available in private hospitals, clinics and laboratories, and the commercial sector. As the qualification is recognised by many countries, many of our graduates have taken up employment in Australia, Canada, Britain, New Zealand and Singapore.
Opportunities for postgraduate studies are available in Hong Kong and overseas.
