A Radiographer sees what no one else sees.
In North Denmark Region we employ and educate radiographers at all of our hospitals.
As a radiographer you spend your days close to people of all ages and you work with the latest technology.
Many illnesses demand an examination of the internal organs – this entails for anything from broken bones to cancer. Thus, as a radiographer you often help/assist doctors determine diagnoses because it is necessary to x-ray or scan patients.
About the education
If you are considering to apply to become a radiographer, it is important that you have an urge to work with people as well as our machinery. You do not need to be an engineer to be able to understand the technology but you need to be interested in learning, how it operates.
The job involves you getting close to the patients, that you show them respect and that you are ready to provide them with the level of care they need.
To become a radiographer you need to study for 3½ years. The education programme is partly made up by theoretical education and partly by clinical training (50/50). The internship can be carried out at one of the hospitals of North Denmark Region.
