Note

This course has strict enrolment requirements. Successful applicants must accept the offer and enrol in units with CQU by the date stated on the offer letter. If you fail to do so, or if you withdraw from your units within this course, your offer will be revoked. This requirement applies irrespective of whether you accepted conditionally or unconditionally in your QTAC application.

Other requirements

Students must meet specific pre-clinical health, safety, security and licensing requirements prior to each placement, and must disclose any condition that may put themselves or the public at significant risk while on placement. Students undertake a total of over 2000 hours of full-time clinical study. Student learning is supported by clinical supervisors on-site and CQUniversity academics. Clinical facilities can often only host one student at a time so the placement locations are spread over a large geographical area. As a result prospective students are advised that they should prepare personally and financially to relocate for some or all of their placement. For full course requirements, visit the Bachelor of Echocardiography and Cardiac Physiology/Graduate Diploma of Echocardiography.
