Health professionals experience adversity as they make the transition from student to independent practice. Resilience during transition to practice for the medical radiation sciences (MRS) is unexamined. A grounded-theory approach was used to explore resilience among new Australian MRS professionals, resulting in a theoretical conceptualisation of resilience as a process of evolution, with phases of impact, energising, maintaining momentum, achieving equilibrium, and beating inertia. Resilience can be fostered by educators, colleagues, employers and professional organisations.
