Expected learning outcomes
At the end of this module students should:
- know the types of fixed and mobile equipment
- know the elements on electrical safety of electromedical equipment
- be able to approach correctly to professional training
- be able to explain the create, editing, present and archive process of radiological images.
Course syllabus and organization

Single session

Didactic methods.
The students, according to pre-established shifts, will carry out practical activities at the affiliated hospitals. If the epidemiological situation were to worsen, part of the internship will be carried out online, as per the resolution of the Interdepartmental Didactic Board.
