Field Experience

This course integrates classroom learning with the application of the learning in a realistic setting through a supervised experience of not less than 96 hours. May be repeated up to a maximum of six credit hours.

Service-Learning

This course examines volunteerism from historical and contemporary perspectives. It provides students with an opportunity to study and experience volunteerism in the community and to discover how communities address issues with diverse populations. This course has as its major objective the encouragement of critical thinking and practical experiences with respect to the concepts of citizenship and social responsibility. The course requires students to participate in a community based service-learning project and to complement their community work with written and oral reflections.

Introduction to Service-Learning

This course examines service in the local community and its connection to diverse disciplines. The major objective of this class is the practical application of concepts being learned in college disciplines. Students practice and apply concepts, while developing citizenship, social responsibility skills, and an understanding of working with diverse populations. The course requires students to participate in a 15 hour community based service-learning project, related to a discipline(s) they are studying in a college class and to complement their community work with written and oral reflections.

Field Investigation in Environmental Studies

This course will provide the student with a multi-integrated education in environmental studies. The students will be investigating life systems in the environment, testing the life support systems, and analyzing the environment to see what impact man’s progress has had and will have on it.

Physical Science

A lecture and laboratory course that integrates the sciences of astronomy, physics, chemistry, and modern contemporary science. Emphasis is placed on applications and principles contributed by all the physical sciences. [48-32-80] Lab Fee

Environmental Science

An interdisciplinary approach analyzing man’s earthly environment from the vantage point of the biological and physical sciences. The course will focus upon such topics as life cycles, energy, pollution, population, and resource deterioration and depletion. Additionally, philosophic and ethical attitudes of man’s relationship to his cultural and natural environment will be examined. Within this framework, man will be studied as a "Citizen of Earth."

Comprehensive Clinical Experience 2

The student will participate in clinical education three days a week in the imaging department of an affiliating hospital. As the final clinical course of the program, students will concentrate on learning and achieving competency on any remaining exams as required by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Students will be encouraged to use this final clinical course to identify and address areas for improvement. For those students who have completed the required competencies, an opportunity to explore advanced imaging modalities may be arranged. As students complete the final clinical requirements of the program, they will remain under the supervision of a radiologic technologist and/or physician, with emphasis placed on patient safety and comfort and professional values, attitudes and behaviors are facilitated.

Radiologic Technology Special Topics

This course is the capstone course for the program. It includes student projects, guest speaker presentations, and preparation for the certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) completed upon graduation. Lab Fee

Cross-Sectional Anatomy

This course presents an introduction of human anatomy from the transverse, sagittal and coronal planes, providing the student an understanding of anatomy in three dimensions. The course is designed for the second-year radiography student as a means to enhance their ability to visualize the appearance and the relationships of anatomical structures in the planar sections. This ability will aid the student with patient positioning skills to accurately demonstrate structures on traditional diagnostic images, as well as a better understanding of anatomy as demonstrated through the sectional imaging modalities of CT and MRI.

Radiobiology and Protection

This course is intended to identify and justify the need to minimize unnecessary radiation exposure to humans. Students will review the principles of cellular biology and identify the sources of electromagnetic and particulate radiations. They will learn about radio sensitivity and the effects of ionizing radiation on human cells, tissues and organs. Radiation units of measurement, as well as dose limits for both the public and the occupational worker will be presented. Students will learn how as radiologic technologists, they can employ various means to produce high quality diagnostic images at a dose as low as reasonably achievable.
