The medical radiography courses are designed to prepare students to be able to successfully perform medical radiographic procedures, including CT and MRI, as an entry-level radiographer. Students enrolled in medical radiography courses will experience a variety of learning opportunities through course work and clinical experience.
Small group, instructor-led learning, Power Point presentations, and hands-on labs with operational X-ray machines and phantoms will be used.
Clinical experience is vital to the success of the students and is an integral component of the medical radiography program. The student must always display a professional appearance in dress and grooming while in the clinical setting.
The students are in the clinics 24 hours a week and are responsible for their own transportation to and from the clinic sites.
The clinical assignments provide students with the volume and variety of clinical experiences necessary to develop essential skills and successfully progress through the program. Our students benefit from the experience of rotating through a variety of settings with diverse patient populations.
Students successfully completing all degree requirements will receive a bachelor of health sciences (BHS) degree, with a major in medical radiography. Upon successful completion of degree requirements, students can become candidates to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Radiography (R) certification examination.
