Radiography students receive instruction on how to manipulate x-ray equipment, radiation protection and safety, patient care and other topics in order to produce images of the tissues, organs, bones, and vessels of the body. Students should be motivated to learn, physically and mentally capable of providing care to our communities of interest, as well as meet the physical demands of the profession. Students can expect to wear lead aprons during certain examinations, and walk up to 5 miles during clinical shifts. Critical thinking and situational awareness is paramount to student success.
