About this course

This one year part-time program covers the fundamentals of magnetic resonance technology, including the physics of magnetic resonance and image formation, the components of modern day magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners, and safety considerations within this specialised field. It's ideal if you are seeking formal qualifications in this rapidly expanding field.

In a multidisciplinary environment, you'll learn from experienced radiographers, medical practitioners, medical physicists, chemists and engineers about the physics of magnetic resonance and image formation, the components of modern MRI scanners and specialist practical skills essential for a dynamic career in this field.

You'll be exposed to new techniques which are not yet part of standard clinical practice. Plus you'll apply your knowledge to projects that make innovative use of magnetic resonance, and gain the skills to assess the needs of a radiography practice and the capability to meet these needs with equipment from various manufacturers.

MRI physicists, MR technologists, image processors, engineers and biomedical engineers are in demand within Australia and internationally. UQ graduates have found employment in leadership positions in hospitals, private practice and research facilities.
