Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

The programme strives to equip students with the comprehensive theoretical knowledge and skills needed to practice as entry-level diagnostic radiographers. It emphasises the following.

  • Fundamental Knowledge: Students will gain an in-depth grasp of the subjects underpinning medical imaging theories and clinical skills.

  • Practical Abilities: We foster the development of the hands-on skills vital for conducting and understanding medical imaging procedures.

  • Professional Development: We prepare students to responsibly care for patients, honing their communication, psychosocial and professional abilities. This ensures effective collaboration with patients, peers and the broader community.

  • Critical Thinking & Innovation: The course cultivates 

    • independent decision-making and problem-solving in clinical scenarios

    • the capacity to connect learned concepts

    • a holistic understanding of a radiographer's role in the wider healthcare landscape

  • Lifelong Learning & Research: We encourage a commitment to continuous learning, acknowledging the evolving nature of the field. The programme also introduces students to research as both a tool for profession advancement and a pathway to further education and qualifications.



The Master of Medical Imaging programme is designed to offer foundational education and training in medical imaging. Our goal is to nurture diagnostic radiographers skilled in top-tier medical imaging services, research engagement and problem-solving in clinical practice.


The clinical practicum, a pivotal part of the curriculum, is facilitated through Hospital Authority departments. Over the programme’s 2-year span, students gain 1,344 hours of hands-on clinical experience. This extensive clinical training is mandatory for accreditation by the Hong Kong Radiographers Board. Per government ordinance, this accreditation is essential for Radiographer (Category: Diagnostic) roles in Hong Kong.


Dedicated clinical educators and mentors from medical imaging departments collaborate with our university’s academic team, ensuring rigorous student supervision. Distinct learning objectives, tailored to align with the evolving clinical learning phases, are set for each specific clinical block. To evaluate student performance holistically, we have implemented a structured assessment system that encompasses progress reports, worksheets, clinical assessments and objective-structured clinical examination (OSCE), capturing cognitive, psychomotor and interpersonal proficiencies.
