Four Day Rural and Remote Radiography
Welcome to the intermediate rural and remote radiography course, the first EPA accredited course in South Australia and is also accredited in Victoria. The course is designed to enable you to acquire the skills and knowledge to safely take and process diagnostic radiographs in a variety of clinical situations. Pre-requisite for entry into the course is that you are a General Practioner or Registered Nurse working in a rural or remote area.
The course is divided into three components, self directed learning package, theoretical & practical workshop and assessment. The intermediate level allows you a license to take radiographs of the upper extremity including Shoulder, the lower extremity, Chest, Cervical spine and Pelvis.
At the end of satisfactorily completing the course you will need to apply for a radiation license through the EPA. We strongly advise you to use our on-line support as the best means of communication and help.
Our team comprises Senior Radiographers working at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, Flinders Medical Centre and privately. They have a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of radiography and teaching including rural settings and have access to a wide range of reference tools.
