Abstract

Clinical education is an essential component of postgraduate radiography training programmes. Most of the teaching and learning happens in the radiology department. Advanced radiographer practitioners and consultant radiographers act as clinical educators of radiography students and radiographers undertaking on-the-job training and postgraduate studies. However, many teach without receiving formal training in clinical education, even though it is widely recognised as a way of improving the standards of radiography education. There is a need to integrate clinical education into postgraduate training programmes to impart radiographers with appropriate knowledge and skills in facilitation of learning.
