The Bachelor of Medical Imaging (Honours) was the perfect step forward for Bhavya, who wanted to use his biomedical science knowledge in a dynamic career pathway.
"I enrolled into this programme as a graduate entry, having recently completed my undergraduate science degree in Biomedical Sciences; I thought this was the perfect step forward.
"This programme provides the opportunity to use some of the best facilities and resources in Aotearoa. One of the activities I have loved the most would have to be performing real life simulations at our Greenlane labs. This really helps cement patient positioning and acclimatises us to our new toy – the x-ray tube.
I would like to continue into the field of either MRI or Ultrasound and eventually channel towards Paediatric imaging due to my passion for child welfare and also for the unique set of challenges it offers.
"I also want to stay active in the research area to help contribute to the overall improvement for imaging techniques in order to make a worldwide impact including rural and indigenous peoples.
“Being a radiographer opens up many more pathways towards other imaging modalities. It’s a dynamic career which allows you to undertake problem solving and creativity to a whole new level in-order to accommodate to your patient’s needs.”
