Overview

The Radiographic Science program at the Idaho State University was developed with the philosophy that didactic education and clinical experience, which includes “hands on,” should happen together for continuity during learning. Therefore, during the entire program, the student learns in the laboratory setting and applies those acquired skills in the clinical setting. This happens on a weekly basis.

Furthermore, in the classroom, students acquire the theoretical information necessary to perform as technologists. The next step involves laboratory experiences where the opportunity to apply technological skills is acquired by using phantoms and simulations. Students then progress and perfect their skills by working with technologists in a clinical environment. 

Additionally, several of the classes are taught by the Physics, Biology, and Health Care Administration faculty. This is atypical of most Radiographic Science programs and is a unique feature that sets the program apart. Our philosophy is that students who learn from experts become experts. When graduation approaches, students are ready to enter the profession confidently.

Mission

The mission of the Radiographic Sciences program 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 who will assume a vital professional role as a medical team member.
