Monash University offers a 4 year degree program that encapsulates all the requirements to become an accredited radiographer.
The Monash Bachelor of Radiography and Medical Imaging (Honours) is an integrated academic and clinical course of 4 years duration. Students enrolled from 2014 into the BRadMedImag degree course will graduate with Honours. The curriculum is student centered and contextualised to professional learning needs. Units of study are integrated vertically and horizontally in relation to the various imaging modalities studied in the course. For example, students only study cross sectional anatomy when learning about imaging modalities capable of generating cross sectional images. This approach is totally integrated with periods of related clinical studies. Clinical studies are intimately related to the on-campus teaching activities and are undertaken in 4 week or 5 week rotations commencing in the first semester of first year. Students can expect to gain relevant experience at a wide variety of clinical institutions ranging from Victorian Rural and Regional Hospitals to major metropolitan Melbourne Hospitals with placements in Tasmania another feature of the course. The program prides itself on the strong links it seeks and creates between the classroom and the clinical work place.

MULTIPLE MINI INTERVIEWS
Monash uses the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) for selection of students. MMI Stations comprise a series of scenarios and associated questions focusing on an applicant's:
- Communication skills
- Critical thinking and
- Ethical/empathic reasoning.
The MMI consists of five sequential interview 'stations'. At each station the applicant will be interviewed for eight minutes followed by two minutes for scoring and changeover (ie ten minutes per station) with a 'circuit' taking 90-100 minutes to complete.
Applicants will be invited (via email) to attend the MMI which will be held at Clayton campus. Selection for interview is based academic merit.
The Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences sets the dates for interview and applicants must appear during the dates specified. Applicants cannot request a late interview, except under extenuating circumstances supported by documented evidence. For 2016 entry, interviews will be held between 5 - 8 January 2016.
Only those applicants who attend an interview will remain in the final ranked list to be eligible for a place.
CLINICAL SITE VISIT
It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that ALL applicants undertake a clinical site visit prior to applying for the course.
The clinical site visits are for the applicants benefit. They should assist in understanding more about what is involved in being a radiographer. It will provided an opportunity to ask questions of the radiographer(s) (eg what their experience has been, what skills they think are important in being a good radiographer etc).
We do not specify or have a preference of particular hospitals or clinics. It is a good idea to visit a small private practice as well as a large hospital, so that you can get a feel of the difference between the two. Additionally, we do not specify a duration for the visit as it is often up to the clinic and what available staff they have to conduct the visit.
Some of the major hospitals will advertise open days, otherwise it will be a matter of calling them up and letting them know that you are interested in undertaking a radiography course and that you would like to undertake a site visit.
