Program Learning Outcomes:

  1. The graduate will perform as a competent radiographer.
  2. The graduate will demonstrate problem solving and critical skills.
  3. The graduate will communicate effectively with faculty, patients and the healthcare team.
  4. The graduate will exhibit professional development consistent with the qualifications of the entry-level technologist.
  5. The graduate will be prepared to write the Registry exam. 

Program Description: 
The Radiography program prepares students to become employed as entry-level radiographers.  Radiographers are essential members of the health care team.  Their knowledge of radiation protection, biology, physics and technical positioning allow them to deliver safe and high quality patient care through the use of imaging modalities. The curriculum is structured so that students can apply knowledge and skill learned in the classroom and virtual laboratory to patient care in clinical settings. 

Accreditation:
