Healthcare Science (Cardiac) or Diagnostic Radiography? Watch
I'm starting an Access to Science course in a few weeks and I have been thinking about what I would like to study at University.
I've been set on Healthcare Science (Cardiac Physiology) as I've always had an interest in anatomy and physiology, in particular the heart, based on many family members having heart disease. I've just finished two days work shadowing (I know, just the two days!) cardiac physiologists and whilst I found it extremely interesting, I did particularly enjoy echocardiography and looking at the heart that way and trying to decipher what we were looking at. This got me thinking about specialising in this area or looking into something a bit broader, and diagnosing other illnesses in the body...
Would it be worth arranging work experience in radiography to compare?
It would be great to hear from students in both areas to hear your experiences.
I almost feel a bit guilty about looking at DR because I've been set on cardiac science for a couple of years now..but I could find it quite interesting to have more variety! I don't know.
Thanks for reading my ramble!
