The Radiography program prepares students to be radiographers, skilled health care professionals who use radiation to produce images of the human body.
Coursework includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, patient care and management, radiation protection, quality assurance, anatomy and physiology, and radiobiology.
Graduates of accredited programs are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' national examination for certification and registration as medical radiographers. Graduates may be employed in hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, medical laboratories, government agencies and industry.
Health Sciences Advising
All applicants must complete the following requirements:
The Radiography (RAD) program is a limited enrollment program and uses a competitive admissions procedure with a point system, not a waiting list, to determine who can register for RAD classes. Applicants are ranked based on points that are determined by grades earned in the general education classes required for the Radiography program, such as ENG-111, PSY-150 and BIO-163. Grades of "C" or better are required in all program-related curriculum classes.
NOTE: BIO classes must have been completed within five years of the first RAD class, and MAT-110 or equivalent must be completed within 10 years of the first RAD class.
