The educational goal of our medical imaging and radiological sciences programs is to rigorously educate our undergraduate students in diverse fields of medical imaging that are built on a strong foundation in engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology. Then students are expected to develop a core competency in a specific specialized area of biomedical engineering. Particular focus is given to in-depth education in the medical physics and radiological sciences, particularly the advanced technology in medical imaging. The principal means of accomplishing these goals is through a comprehensive, interdisciplinary curriculum, which begins with a critical understanding of engineering, mathematics, chemistry, physics and biology, and builds towards state-of-the-art research and development in medical imaging and radiological sciences.
Our graduates are trained to be competent radiological technologists, life long learners, leaders who demonstrate evidence-based practice, critical inquiry and clinical decision making skills needed for differential diagnosis technology and autonomous practice in the field of medical imaging and radiological sciences. They are trained to be self-assured, adaptable, service-oriented and reflective practitioners who value individual and cultural differences. They are able to work in a clinical environment and also in a research laboratory, and achieve well in both clinical and research arenas.
