The Mission of the Department of Radiologic Sciences is to provide students with both the academic and technical foundations to competently and safely perform Radiologic procedures, to prepare qualified imaging technologists who will ethically respond to the needs of patients with technical competence and compassion, and to assume a vital professional role as a medical team member.
To provide students with clinical competence in the Radiologic Sciences.
To foster student critical thinking about Radiologic Sciences situations.
Students will demonstrate critical thinking by posting passing scores on the indicated projects within the following online BSRT courses: RADS 1223, 2112, 2711, and 2222.
To instil a sense of professionalism in the students.
Graduates will complete the MSU BSRTcourses.
Graduates will demonstrate lifelong learning by maintaining good standing with the ARRT or MRT.
To promote effective professional communication skills.
Midwestern State University's Radiologic Science Program was designed with the philosophy that the most effective way to prepare graduates to enter the Radiologic Sciences profession is a progression from theory in the classroom to guided practice in the laboratory to "real-world" application in the clinical environment. The fall and spring semesters of the first year are devoted to on-campus classes and energized laboratories. As students enter the summer term of the second year, the focus changes to clinical experiences and some online courses. The clinical environment reinforces technological, patient care, and professional skills.
