The course trains future medical equipment operators in radiology, radiotherapy and nuclear medicine institutions; in electromedical, audiology, clinical physiology and medical IT labs, as well as in radiological protection inspection.
Graduates can find employment in radiology units operating traditional X-ray equipment, computed tomography scanners, nuclear medical resonance tomography, nuclear medicine gamma cameras and linear particle accelerators in radiotherapy. The course covers general subjects: human anatomy and physiology etc., but most of all the rules of operating radiological and radiotherapy equipment, radioisotope diagnostics, radiological safety regulations and sufficient knowledge about public health in order to take up a supplementary master’s course in public health. Upon obtaining their diploma they may take the exam to obtain a licence of a R and S class radiological protection inspector. Some students/graduates choose to take a parallel medical physics course or a part-time second cycle electroradiology course at other colleges.
The electroradiology major has a student exchange programme with the Polytechnic Institute of Porto, Portugal.
First cycle graduates are eligible to take a second cycle (master’s) course in public health.
