I am honestly so torn on the course that I want to do, both seem so good but i just do know which one is suited for me...any advice????
Midwifery is a very intense course but the outcome looks so rewarding. But DR looks so interesting since you are identifying diagnostics....

Maybe you could make a pros and cons list of both? You could also look at different universities and see what both of their courses are like and what they have to offer and that might help you see which you'd be more interested in studying. Obviously I have no idea what you're preferences are but by reading your message I feel like possibly midwifery is the better option, it's so rewarding and will definitely be an interesting job indeed. Just remember that you can always change courses if you feel like you've made the wrong decision!

Midwifing okay is best choice.

It's like you said very intense & competertive degree course to do but it's worth the rewards in the end after all the hard work you put into it.
I haven't looked back since I qualified as a registered midwife in 2019 as I love the job day in & out.

Diagnostic radiography is a 4 years course at majority of universities I think while likes of nursing / midwifing is only 3 years.

Radiography is a standard 3 year course apart from some Scottish universities. Out of interest, have you considered radiotherapy and oncology? Has less numbers apply to it than radiography so smaller cohorts and tend to work in specialised centres. You work more in teams than diagnostic radiographers, follow a patient throughout their treatment course, has the diagnostic/ technical side etc and also can be very rewarding ....

Hey! I am currently a diagnostic radiography student and can always answer questions you may have! I have to say I wouldn't put diagnostic radiography as less 'intense' as such as there is a lot to learn and there is a lot of physics involved, particularly once you start going into second year. What I would maybe say is try to get some work experience. It may be hard right now because of the pandemic but I would try to get as much real insight into the roles as you can. Of course, I would be biased but I love diagnostic radiography and there's a lot of modalities you can go to specialise in. You will never be bored and it has a very good career ladder.

Hi,
what would you say are pros and cons of the course as I am torn between radiography and cardiac physiology?
Does it ever get boring and is the content manageable?

Thanks
