The radiographer assists the Radiologist (M.D.) be performing examinations on the body to rule out or confirm diseases, fractures, and other injuries. These duties may be performed not only in the Radiology Department but also in the emergency department, operating room, specialty areas and at the bedside.

The Radiologic Technology Program is designed to prepare students for their future roles in the health field as radiographers. The learning opportunities are organized to develop the intellectual, interpersonal, and psychomotor skills of the students. The education occurs within several institutions. The College facilitates learning opportunities through formal instruction and selected supervised experiences within the energized labs. The clinical education sites provide the opportunity for the mastery of the knowledge, insight, and skills required to perform a radiographic procedure and produce a diagnostic radiograph while practicing good radiation protection. The mastery of the interpersonal skills required to deal effectively with patients and other members of the health care team is an important aspect that is developed and acquired in conjunction with the performance of radiographic procedures.

Students are encouraged to accept responsibility for the learning process and to develop critical thinking in decision-making and problem-solving. A clinical competency based evaluation system provides a uniform method of preparing students to function in an active Radiology Department.
