Radiology Receptionist Essentials was created by Radiographer, Tristan Charles to make continuing professional development for radiology professionals relevant, easily accessible and affordable. The course would be beneficial to employers, receptionists working within the industry and for those with no healthcare experience interested in pursuing a career in radiology. 

The online course is designed to give you a broad understanding of radiology and provide you with tools to understand why things are done a certain way instead of memorising the companies’ protocols or policies. The course can be accessed from RadTrain, www.radtrain.com.au
