The Radiologic Science Department’s Regional program allows you to pursue a degree or certificate in the advanced medical imaging specialties, such as Nuclear Medicine, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, and Advanced Radiologic Sciences with an emphasis in Mammography, CT, MRI, and other specialties.
As a student in the regional program you will come to WSU’s Ogden campus approximately five (5) times during the semester for intensive classroom sessions. You complete clinical work at a site in your community, and WSU faculty members monitor your progress through a clinical competency validation system in partnership with your site and designated medical professionals.
You submit course assignments and communicate with instructors through e-mail, US Postal Service and fax, and take your exams using Chi Tester, WSU’s online testing system.
Although these programs are managed through WSU's Continuing Education, students are considered full-time, on-campus WSU students. As such, you are eligible for federal financial aid.
Due to the outreach radiography program’s success in other states, WSU became the recognized educational center in radiologic imaging. Hospitals began to approach the university, requesting programs in advanced specialty areas to help with critical manpower shortages. The faculty addressed these needs by designing a delivery system that allows students to remain in their communities while enrolled in the program.
