Mission and Goals

Program Mission & Goals

Radiologic Technology is a profession involving both medicine and people. The radiographer works with the physician performing radiologic examinations of the patient's body. X-rays are used in the detection of disease or defects in bones, tissue, and organs. Therefore, it is essential that radiographers have a thorough understanding of the human body, technical knowledge of radiologic procedures and equipment, and patient care skills to meet the needs of our patients.

The mission of the School of Radiography is to provide quality instruction, both academic and clinical in order to graduate competent entry-level radiographers.

The goals of the program are:

1.  Students will demonstrate clinical competence.

 Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Students will demonstrate positioning skills.
  • Students will select appropriate technical factors.
  • Students will evaluate images for appropriate positioning and technical requirements.

2.  Students will practice critical thinking and problem solving skills.
