Radiologic Technology is an art and science based upon principles and techniques which are utilized by members of the profession in meeting the needs of patients while carrying out specific responsibilities within a multicultural medical environment.
Learning is a continuous process of assimilation of knowledge and progressive development of the student towards pre-established goals. Learning is dependent upon the readiness, motivation and active participation of the student, the student's self-determined goals, and progress toward these goals.
Students will be taught the necessary skills to:
Communicate effectively in the clinical setting
Demonstrate clinical competence consistent with an entry level radiographer
Gain an awareness of the importance of professional growth and development
Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving skills
Program goals are reflected in course outlines for both the didactic and clinical portions of each course. Student evaluations are performance / competency based to reflect the achievement of program goals.
During Semesters I-III the student will be assigned clinical education rotations at one clinical center. During Semesters IV-VI the students will be rotated to a second clinical site, and Semester VII is a clinical internship.
The objectives of the Clinical Internship Assignment (Semester VII) are to:
1) Provide the student with a broader clinical knowledge base.
2) Recognize different routines for achieving good quality diagnostic radiographs.
3) Provide for interaction with different radiologists, staff technologists and clinical instructors.
4) Prepare the student for initial staff radiographic responsibilities.
5) Acquaint the student with various types of Radiographic Equipment.
