Our nuclear medicine team has been inducted into the Work Integrated Learning Hall of Fame! We are excited to be the recipients of this award; one that recognises our ongoing support and training of University of Newcastle nuclear medicine students. The award is testament not only to the hard work of our team of dedicated specialists, but also the University of Newcastle’s commitment to preparing their graduates for their future careers.
Offering training for students across all years of study, in both stand-alone practices and hospital settings, Queensland X-Ray view placements as an opportunity to strengthen their profession and mentor the next generation of nuclear medicine technologists, by providing exceptional guidance and a supportive team culture of students.
Queensland X-Ray’s Nuclear Medicine Operations Manager, John Barlow said:
“Queensland X-Ray is very proud to receive recognition for the huge effort our nuclear medicine technologists make to ensure the next generation is well prepared and highly capable once they graduate.
We have been very impressed with the calibre of nuclear medicine students that come from the University of Newcastle. They have all been proactive, eager to learn and have adapted well to a busy department. Our students are always treated as part of the team.
Queensland X-Ray also supports nuclear medicine students with the regional scholarship that aims to subsidise nuclear medicine students’ lengthy and costly fourth year clinical placements, and guarantees that these graduates have employment immediately out of university.”
In its third year, the University of Newcastle Employability Excellence Awards is an opportunity to recognise the community of business and organisations that enable the University’s reputation for producing graduates who are ‘real life’ ready.
