Radiography— Experiences from the "ColeFace"
Apr 4 2012, 7:28 PM EDT | Post edited: Apr 4 2012, 7:44 PM EDTPlease share your experiences of our Profession from Remote/Sole Practitioners to High-End Modality Supervisors, The Big Chiefs, to Little Chiefs. Academic, commercial and regulatory positions.
My "LinkedIn" Profile <http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=132859352&trk=tab_pro> outlines my background and in "Need Help" <metal-fan-666> shared a facinating insight to his working life. It would be great to hear from others about their circumstances.
I have held a broad range of roles from Newby Radiographer in Northern Tasmania, to jumior Radiographer at FMC to Senior Radiographer/Radiation Safety Inspector to Deputy Chief, and Systems Specialist, then Chief in Central SA. More recently I have been involved in Cardiac Cath Labs/Angiography in a couple of small Private Hospitals and undertaking Locum Relief in that sector and General Radiography.
Hense my wide ranging perspective on the Profession & our place in the world. The take away lesson is that Professionalism is an internal experience which we, as individuals, have to nurture from within.
A Radiographic colleague of my training years diligently pursued his study to sit the Fellowship exam at the earliest possible time. Through his dedication, he passed at the first sitting & some time later had a conversation with a non-Radiographer friend— "So you have gone up a grade?" "No". "You're paid more?" "About $5/week" "Ah! Your success was televised in the national press?" "No" "So! it's just simply official that you're a smart arse"
Appologies for my journalistic licence.
With that in mind, here's a place to hang out your shingle.
