Lee now works as a Diagnostic Radiographer at North Tees Hospital providing care for many patients.
I really enjoyed the placement elements of my course. By using the diagnostic simulation rooms and computer imaging archives it created a safe and simulated learning environment which gave me a good set of practical skills in that area. Learning about what it took to be a radiographer was probably the best part of the course because it helped me to bond and develop as a cohort with such a demanding and diverse career.
I did placements locally in Stockton, Middlesbrough, and Darlington working in private hospitals, and I went as far as Sunderland working in mobile units. The placements were invaluable and core to achieving and augmenting the theoretical aspects of the course. I also did some voluntary work for the radiography peer assisted study scheme, assisting new students with life at university and providing advice and study tips for future learning. In my current job I support new and future radiographers in their studies and placements. I now work as a Diagnostic Radiographer at North Tees Hospital providing care for many patients.
