Meet our students

John Ryan

John Ryan - Clinical Lead Radiation Therapist
“I have a growing interest in hybrid imaging and its applications for oncology patients. The Masters of Medical Imaging Science allows me to study this evolving field and also enhance my anatomical knowledge. Studying part-time and remotely is a massive draw, as I have been able to continue working full-time.

Undertaking a master’s degree requires dedication and an aspiration to improve yourself. I believe that employers want their staff to push the boundaries of their profession and demonstrate a willingness to improve. The Masters of Medical Imaging Science has definitely benefited my career. It gave me a unique set of skills.”
