This curriculum is designed to prepare selected students to qualify as contributing members of the health team who care for patients under the supervision of qualified physicians. Upon completion of the curriculum, which includes a one-semester internship, the student is eligible to apply to take the National Registry Examination leading to certification as a Registered Radiographer, RT-R. Successful completion of the program and certifying exam will qualify a graduate to gain employment as a radiographer.
The Radiography Program strives to provide quality educational experiences that ensure students prepare academically, clinically and professionally to develop intelligent, flexible and mature responses to the changing nature of medical imaging.
