Your journey toward a bachelor's of science degree with a major in Radiologic Sciences involves a combination of foundational sciences, math, and general education with applied imaging class, lab, and clinical experiences. You begin with two or more years of pre-radiologic sciences academic courses, and then a 21- to 24-month full-time professional internship within a hospital-based program affiliated with NDSU.
These internships will focus on didactic and clinical education in one of three areas:
- Radiography: A 24-month internship consisting of classroom and clinical instruction in patient care, radiation physics and protection, principles of imaging, positioning, radiobiology and pathology which prepares the graduate to enter the profession with experience in diagnostic radiography. In addition to general radiography, education may also be provided in mammography, CT, and MRI.
- Echocardiography: A 21-month internship offered through Sanford Medical Center, Fargo, North Dakota. Internship classes, scanning labs, and clinical education will focus on adult echocardiography with rotations in pediatric and stress echo.
- Diagnostic medical sonography: A 21-month internship offered through Sanford Medical Center, Fargo. Internship classes, scanning labs, and clinical education will focus on abdomen, OB/GYN, small parts, and vascular sonography.
