Program Overview

Diploma in Medical Imaging is a three-year program that prepares the graduate to be a professionally competent diagnostic radiographer. The development of curriculum balances between theoretical and practical knowledge in the university campus, campus labs and our 26 KPJ Specialist Hospitals with state-of-the-art facilities, with an up-to-date imaging modalities. This training program is hoped to empower the graduates to be highly competent in their clinical skills holistically. 

Medical Imaging is concerned with diagnostic procedures, health screening and research, using sophisticated and ever-evolving technology of equipments, such as general radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasonography. . Medical images of the human body are produced, to aid diagnosis and treatment planning. Diagnostic radiographers are important players of the healthcare team, to deliver a sensitive and patient-centred service using these specialised equipment. A more specialised radiographers may work in different modalities such as fluoroscopy, mammography, nuclear medicine and interventional radiology. The prospect of medical imaging not only revolves in the clinical area, but expands to research, administration and education.

Career Opportunity

Graduates of this course may grow as a radiologic technicians, or specialise in a particular area of medical radiography to become radiation technologists. Non-clinical professions of this course may include clinical instructor (education), modality application specialist and researchers.  

Financing your Study

For 2020, KPJ offers a lot of opportunities for Scholarship in the form of Biasiswa by Merit or Dermasiswa based on Financial Need that reflects our commitment in grooming future professionals and leaders in the healthcare sector.  With the combination of PTPTN and our Scholarship, many students may not need to pay any tuition or fee during their studies and instead will receive Pocket Money of RM300 per month, plus hostel accommodation for the whole duration of 3 years of your study which is readily included in the tuition and fee.  Please refer the following Table for an indication of how much you will actually need to pay or will receive for your study.  This calculation is based on the condition that you, like almost all our present students, are approved and receive PTPTN to pay for your tuition and fee.  We would help you to apply for PTPTN during your orientation week.
