Keys to Success
To succeed in this program, you must be organized, motivated, and resilient. You will need to absorb and retain a wide range of medical, technical, and theoretical information quickly, so it helps to cultivate good study habits and to seek out support from tutor or professors as soon as you need it.
To make effective decisions, leaders in imaging need to be open to different opinions, analyze contradictory information, understand finance and information systems, and interpret data. Motivating others to implement their decisions requires strong leadership abilities. At times, you’ll work collaboratively with fellow students, so effective written and oral communication skills will be important. You must also be able to exercise tact and diplomacy, and conduct yourself professionally in the program and as a future healthcare practitioner.
