RADIOLOGIC SCIENCES PROGRAMS

 

NDSU’s Bachelor of Science degree, major in Radiologic Sciences, combines foundational sciences, math, and general education with applied imaging class, lab, and clinical experience. Students complete two or more years of pre-radiologic sciences academic courses followed by a two-year full-time professional internship within a hospital-based program affiliated with NDSU.  Students apply to one of three professional internships during their final year of pre-requisite coursework at NDSU. These internships will focus on didactic and clinical education in radiography, echocardiography, or diagnostic medical sonography.

Radiography


Students pursuing radiography will complete pre-RS college courses. During their final year of coursework on campus, students apply for the two year internship to be completed in one of the hospital-based radiologic technology programs with which the Department of Allied Sciences affiliates. All affiliated hospital programs maintain programmatic accreditation through the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Upon completion of the degree requirements, including the two year internship, NDSU bestows the baccalaureate degree and the graduate is eligible to take the national certifying examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Echocardiography

 

 

 

Students pursuing sonography specialization in echocardiography will complete pre-RS college courses. During their final year of coursework on campus, students apply for the 21-month internship offered through Sanford Health, Fargo, North Dakota. Internship classes, scanning labs, and clinical education will focus on adult echocardiography with rotations in pediatric and stress echo.  College courses and the echocardiography classes, lab, and clinical courses constitute the baccalaureate degree
awarded by NDSU.

 

 

 

Diagnostic Medical Sonography


Students pursuing specialization in diagnostic medical sonography will complete pre-RS college courses. During their final year of coursework on campus, students apply for the 21-month internship offered through Sanford Health, Fargo. Internship classes, scanning labs, and clinical education will focus on abdomen, OB/GYN, small parts, and vascular sonography.  College courses and the sonography classes, lab, and clinical courses constitute the baccalaureate degree awarded by NDSU.

It is highly recommended that students interested in an RS major meet with the RS adviser for more information about degree requirements, internship sites, and admission criteria at least one year prior to anticipated internship application.
