NEW OFFERING:  RTE 1000         link to RTE1000
 

If you have applied for, or have an interest in any of the Imaging Science programs, this notice will be of interest to you.  RTE 1000 has, up to now, been a first semester course for some of our programs and is usually the only course you take in the first semester.  We are now offering this course in every semester for your convenience and in case you are undecided about which program you would like to apply for, this course will help you make an informed decision.  Successful completion of this course does not guarantee admission to any of our programs.  Please see an advisor with your questions and, as always, make regular visits to our Medical campus website to keep informed.

Beginning with 2007-2, RTE 1000 (Introduction to Radiography) will now be offered to all students interested in an imaging career in any of our four programs. The course contains information on all of our imaging programs, as well as a sample of the type of learning that will be required by you to succeed in any of these programs.

As students interested in the field of imaging, or just wanting to find out if you are interested, you now have a new option to help determine the correct path for your career.  This course will be offered each year in fall, spring, and summer A and B.  This is how this 2 credit course works for each of our programs:

Radiologic Technology: This is a first semester course for students admitted to the program.  You may, however, take it the prior spring and not take it in Summer B (the program's first semester) if you choose.  The 2 credits will count toward your degree in Radiologic Technology if you are admitted to the program. 

Nuclear Medicine Technology:  This is a first semester course for students admitted to the program.  You may, however, take it the prior spring and not take it in Summer A (the program's first semester) if you choose.  The 2 credits will count toward your degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology if you are admitted to the program. 

Radiation Therapy:  This is an option for students if they would like more information on the imaging programs and what it takes to succeed in this field, but the credits will not count toward your degree in Radiation Therapy if you are admitted to the program. 

Diagnostic Medical Sonography: 

This is an option for students if they would like more information on the imaging programs and what it takes to succeed in this field, but the credits will not count toward your degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography if you are admitted to the program. 

The following general education courses are recommended prior to registering for RTE 1000, but not mandatory:

ENC 1101                                                                                                        BSC 2085

PHI 2604                                                                                                        BSC 2085L

      

If this option is of interest to you, please see an advisor at the Medical campus
