The following are the most frequently asked questions about the Medical Imaging program.
Who is eligible for the 2 + 2 Degree in Medical Imaging?
This program has been designed as an advancement of skills for medical imaging professionals. The program will move the associate and diploma entry level technologist toward either an advanced credential or the baccalaureate degree. The candidate for this program will have credentials or eligibility in one of the primary imaging modalities: radiologic technology, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, or ultrasonography. Applicants for the Medical Imaging Program must meet all admission requirements in addition to the imaging credentialing eligibility.
When are classes scheduled?
All courses in the baccalaureate and advanced credentialed programs were developed with the working technologist in mind. The curriculum may be completed in a 100% online format or hybrid format. Hybrid courses in CT and MRE are offered in a mix of on campus and online with required class meetings scheduled in the evenings.
How are clinical requirements fulfilled in the advanced credentialed programs?
Currently we have clinical requirements attached to both the CT and MRI advanced credentialed programs. These are deemed by the program as competency based and will be scheduled by program faculty to any of the program's 15+ clinical affiliations. Clinical requirements are scheduled as much as possible to accommodate both class and work schedules. However, there is an expectation as students will participate in a prescribed weekly schedule at the assigned clinical site in order to fulfill the needed competencies as set by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Clinical procedural competencies determine eligibility to sit for the national certification exam.
