The Radiologic Sciences Program offers two advanced certificate programs.
Computed Tomography Certificate trains technologists to use radiation to produce cross-sectional images of the patient, which are used by the physician to make a diagnosis.
The Computed Tomography certificate is a two-semester program that begins each fall. Didactic classes are held on Mondays from 5-8:50 p.m. both fall and spring semesters. The CT clinical experience is 24 clock-hours per week beginning in late September each year.
Vascular Interventional Certificate trains VIR technologists to use radiation and advanced patient care skills to produce vascular images of the patient, which are used by the physician to make a diagnosis.
The Vascular Interventional certificate is a three-semester program that is offered in the fall of odd-numbered years. Didactic classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5-8:50 p.m. fall, spring and summer semesters. The VI clinical experience is eight clock-hours per week in the fall semester and 24 clock-hours per week in spring and summer.
