As an Army Radiographer, you’ll help to keep our soldiers and their families fit and healthy by carrying out scans and x-rays using modern medical equipment. You''ll work in a range of environments, from large medical centres on Army bases and in intensive care units or emergency departments to field hospitals on operations abroad. You don''t need to have a background in medicine – we’ll fund your professional training and teach you everything you need to know about being a radiographer and a soldier.
Find where you belong.
If you want to be a Radiographer, you''ll start with your initial military training which will teach you how to be a soldier - this will cover everything from fieldcraft to how to handle a rifle. Your initial training will be at either Pirbright or Winchester and last for 14 weeks.
You''ll then take a three-year BSc (Hons) Diagnostic Radiography degree at Birmingham City University. You will also be assigned to a Defence Medical Group Hospital where you will put your classroom-based learning to good, practical use. If you are already qualified as a Radiographer, you''ll move straight to your new role with your unit.
Army Radiographers have the potential to gain postgraduate qualifications throughout their career in areas such as Computed Tomography.
SHOW PEOPLE WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF
We''ll be with you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. From the moment you begin your training you''ll get all the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you''ll soon get promoted, which means more responsibility and extra pay.
