Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate advanced knowledge of the effects of exposure to ionising radiation at the cellular, organ, body and population levels;
2. Critically reflect on radiation safety as applied to the patient, other health staff and themselves;
3. Critically analyse models of energy deposition and of external and internal radiation dosimetry;
4. Critically analyse and derive elementary models of radiation action and risk/dose minimisation; and
5. Apply and reflect on in clinical practice principles and applications of radiation protection.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
All assessment items must be attempted. Students must obtain an aggregate result of greater or equal to 50% of total credit to pass this unit.
The students will participate in various learning activities such as lectures, online learning activities, and self-directed learning. The students' learning will be complimented by the Canvas platform. There will be three hours of lectures and one hour for tutorial per week during the semester. Apart from the lectures and tutorials, students are required to engage in at least four hours of independent and self-directed learning per week.
Students are required to attend their lectures and tutorials and attempt all the assessment tasks. If you are ill or suffer a misadventure, you must notify the unit convenor as soon as possible.
Required IT skills
Access to the LearnOnline (Canvas) site.
This unit may involve online meetings in real time using the Virtual Room in your UCLearn teaching site. The Virtual Room allows you to communicate in real time with your lecturer and other students. To participate verbally, rather than just typing, you will need a microphone. For best audio quality a microphone and speaker headset are recommended. For more information and to test your computer, go to the Virtual Room in your UCLearn site and 'Join Course Room'. This will trigger a tutorial to help familiarise you with the functionality of the virtual room.
