Graduate Diploma in Mammography
Mammography is the process of using low-energy X-rays to examine changes in the human breast.
Charles Sturt University offers a Graduate Diploma in Mammography as a pathway for graduates of health and science courses to develop the knowledge and clinical skills to become mammographic technologists.
The course has been designed to meet the growing demand for mammography services in Australia. Each subject involves a clinical placement component to ensure graduates have the practical skills and experience required to work in a clinic, such as BreastScreen Tasmania.
The course is delivered online and can be completed in one year with full-time study. For more information, visit the Charles Sturt University website.
