DT229 Programme Description In this unique programme students learn to measure and image the biological activity of the human body and to provide diagnostic information to Medical Staff. It is not necessary to have done physics prior to entry. In the fi rst two years the students learn about the physiology, anatomy and biochemistry of the body and the use of technology in providing diagnosis. Students spend their third and some of fourth year on hospital placement to learn how to apply their training and knowledge in a clinical setting. A hospital based research project is undertaken in fourth year. In order to undertake the hospital placement, students must complete a health screening and vaccination programme, the nature of which will change from time-to-time depending on the requirements of the health service. It is a requirement of the placement providers that all students on this programme must undergo Garda vetting procedures before being allowed to register. Students must complete the required documentation, including a full list of all previous addresses, in order for clearance checks to be made. Students with previous addresses outside of Ireland will be required to provide evidence of vetting by the relevant authority in which the address is located and at their own cost. Currently Irish addresses are vetted by the Garda Vetting Unit at no cost to the student. Career Opportunities The area of Clinical Measurement within the health service is growing fast in Ireland and demand for graduates is high. It is expected that the majority of graduates will fi nd employment in Clinical Measurement in hospitals in Ireland and abroad. They may also work in medical device manufacture, research and development or in sales and marketing.
