Program Expectations

The Radiography Program provides learning opportunities for students in an array of clinical learning environments. The clinical experiences range from imaging centers, orthopedic offices, medical office groups and from small to large hospitals. This ensures that students are exposed to a maximum variety of exams through the use of conventional, computed and digital radiography equipment. Clinical rotations are assigned so that each student has the opportunity to experience procedures essential for the ARRT clinical competency requirements.
