Why Study General Radiologic Science
Are you a student interested in a healthcare career who has a strong foundation in math and science?
The accredited radiography program provides the required didactic information for student success. The didactic classes are interspersed with clinical experiences. This provides students the opportunity to see the practical application of the information learned in the classroom. Successful completion of the program qualifies students for the required certification exam. The curriculum includes a capstone exam prep class as well as faculty-student research collaboration.
There is a national shortage of radiologic technology professionals. Potential professionals may complete Some programs offer two-year AAS degrees which qualify graduates to sit for national certification exams. Many radiologic technology professionals pursue bachelor’s degrees to enhance advancement opportunities. The BSRS is a viable degree completion option.
There are also one-year certificate programs that qualify students for careers in diagnostic medical sonography and nuclear medicine technology and other radiologic technology specialties. To be eligible for these programs, students must be certified in another radiologic technology field or hold a bachelor’s degree and complete certain core requirements. The BSRS coursework is advantageous for these individuals as the degree includes RLTN coursework that would be beneficial in their chosen profession.
The radiologic technology faculty members are registered radiologic technologists in at least one radiology discipline. They have a variety of professional experience and hold a minimum of a masters’ degree.
What Will I Learn
- Student(s) will develop professionalism
- Student(s) will demonstrate critical thinking skills
- The program will provide our community with graduates with an educational background in math and science (including human anatomy and physiology). These graduates also complete coursework specific to radiologic technologies (patient care & interaction, quality control, management, etc.), These graduates will be well qualified to enter radiologic technology career training programs.
