Abstract

This study explores the expectations and experiences of newly qualified diagnostic radiographers during their transition into practice. This was a longitudinal study using interpretative phenomenological analysis methodology. Data were gathered from four students who participated in a focus group. This informed semi structured interviews with a further eight students who were interviewed prior to starting work and three times over the following twelve months. Themes generated from the data included; experience, fitting in, and identity. This study brings to light the experiences of newly qualified diagnostic
radiographers. The findings are open to theoretical generalizability and raise issues that may be used by academic staff in the preparation of students and managers who support newly qualified staff members.
