The Radiologic Technology Program of the River Valley Community College has been developed with the purpose of providing competent Radiographers for the Imaging field. A Radiographer is an important member of the Allied Health Care team. They are responsible for producing high quality medical images for diagnostic purposes. Radiographic procedures are performed on patients of all ages. We also offer students experiences in the most recent imaging advancements and technology for the acquisition and processing of images in the medical field including the use of portable equipment in operating room, emergency room and intensive care units.
|PROGRAM GOALS||EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES - Graduates will:|
|To prepare students/graduates to demonstrate professional values and ethical behaviors in the work place||
|To prepare students/graduates to demonstrate competencies in the essential skills of medical imaging||
|To prepare students/graduates to communicate effectively and professionally in the medical environment||
|To prepare students/graduates to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills||
|To prepare graduates to successfully meet entry level expectations of employers||
