  • 1. Radiography and Radiotherapy DEGREE PROGRAMME IN RADIOGRAPHY AND RADIOTHERAPY The degree programme in radiography and radiotherapy includes the degree in health care and social services awarding graduates with the degree of a radiographer. Graduates are registered according to law pertaining professions in health care (555/94). Radiographers are experts in radiographic examinations and interventional processes and in nuclear medicine and in radiotherapy. The degree in radiography and radiotherapy includes an interview by the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority Finland. Radiographers are responsible, both as individuals and as member of the medical staff ordained by the presiding physician, of the diagnostic radiography and medical imaging of the patient. Radiographers face clients/patients of different ages, different cultural backgrounds and different medical conditions, which requires them to act rapidly, ethically and economically. Radiographers act as experts in radiation protection, where their specialisation is optimising radiological exposure both in their personal and professional group activities. Radiographers operate in both the public and the private sector. In addition to public health care they work in private companies and veterinary services, as well as in supervising industrial radiation use. In addition to the following they may also act as environmental experts in ecological matters The objective of the degree programme in radiography and radiotherapy is to educate radiographers with a knowledge base in radiographic science. Radiographic science concerns examining and treating human beings utilising various energies like X-ray and gamma radiation, the nuclear magnetic resonance effect and the ultrasound. Radiography and radiotherapy also utilises the research and information basis of other disciplines. During the education radiographers acquire abilities to develop and evaluate their own professional activities and radiography in general as well as to entrepreneurship and international cooperation. The technology used in diagnostic radiography, nuclear medical imaging and radiotherapy preconditions radiographers to master mathematics, natural sciences and the applications of medical technology and information technology. The clinical treatments also requires them the know-how in medical and nursing science. Quality development in radiography and radiotherapy requires mastering the scientific research process, through which radiographers decipher information and carry out development tasks. Radiographers then utilise this in both the national and international level. The degree programme in radiography and radiotherapy comprises common basic studies, professional studies (including clinical placements) as well as the bachelor’s thesis and elective studies. The main subjects are radiography, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy. Supervised clinical placements aim at familiarising students, under supervision, with essential diagnostic imagining examinations, nuclear medicine and radiotherapy in the service sector of health care. Clinical placements comprise at least 50 credit units (75 ECTS credits), part of which can be carried out during international student exchange.
