The radiography program is a 24 month course of study that is designed to prepare the graduate for employment in the medical imaging profession. Radiographers use radiation to create radiographs of the human body for the medical doctor to diagnose disease. A study of anatomy, patient care, imaging equipment, technique, and radiation biology are integrated into each course. Students learn principles related to medical imaging and apply these to practice in clinical. The program has three components- classroom, laboratory, and off site clinical education. Students spend approximately 1700 hours in clinical practice. Upon completion of the program students are eligible to apply for certification examination with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and apply for state licensure (if a license is required for that particular state).
