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.
