Electroradiology as an interdisciplinary field of knowledge which involves issues from medicine, health sciences and physical education. Electroradiology is a science associated with performing radiological procedures, imaging exams, radiotherapy procedures and nuclear medicine. Electroradiology, as a dynamically developing science, gives good perspectives for the graduate on the job market, who has the abilities of controlling and using the radiodiagnostic, radiotherapeutic, and electro medical equipment. Electroradiology studies give prospects for those who, because of detailed knowledge of medical equipment, will be able to form evaluation of technical and medical value of the exploited devices.
The electroradiology graduate will obtain the ability to use general knowledge in the fields of medical and physical sciences and a detailed knowledge of electroradiology. The graduate is prepared to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures involving the use of radiological and radiotherapy equipment, nuclear medicine, and electro medical devices (electrocardiography, electroencephalography, electromyography, audiology, respiratory function tests, and others); understands the techniques of producing information carrier (diagnostics) and tissue damaging agents (radiotherapy), the construction of devices and the effects of ionizing radiation on organisms; predict and prevent the effects of medical equipment misusage during diagnostic and therapeutic process. Great pressure will be put on achieving the educational goals concerning directly oncological diagnostics and treatment – because of the growing demand of electroradiology specialists. The graduate will be psychologically predisposed for the work with sick people, will know the foreign language on B2 level of Common European Framework of Reference for Language and will be able to use the foreign medical language. The graduate can be employed in radiology, radiotherapy, and nuclear medicine facilities, ECG, EEG, EMG, and audiology labs, and clinical physiology units providing the full range of services, in Inspection of Radiology Protection, in cooperation with physicians of different medical specialties, medical physicists and engineers. Being aware of co-responsibility for the patient’ health, the graduate should follow a profession with particular diligence, following the rules of professional ethics and legal regulations. Most of the graduates will be prepared to take master degree studies.
Electroradiologists are employed in every hospital and clinics where they perform radiological or cardiac diagnostics. Radiotherapy and nuclear medicine specialists are employed in facilities dealing with radiotherapy or with more advanced diagnostic techniques. For example, there are about 50 electroradiologists working in Wielkopolskie Centrum Onkologii (Greater Poland Cancer Centre). Thus, starting a new degree course in medical department of State University of Applied Sciences in Kalisz reaches out to expectations and demands of current job market.
