Clinical/Health Management Concentration for Radiographers
Concentration Course Work Options
The Clinical Concentration prepares qualified radiographers for advanced skills in 1) cardiovascular interventional technology, 2) computed tomography, and 3) magnetic resonance imaging technology. The Health Management Concentration helps prepare radiographers for supervisory roles within the health care environment.
Students receive a theoretical foundation in these advanced imaging specialties and then select a clinical concentration and / or a health management concentration. Clinical experience is obtained at local hospitals throughout northwest Indiana. Health management concentration course work is offered through the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA).
Students may select from any of the following courses to complete their 12 credit hours of concentration course work. Students interested in advanced clinical skills are encouraged to enroll in the Clinical Concentration courses. For every 1 credit hour of clinical course work, students spend 60 hours per semester in the clinical environment learning the advanced skills. Students interested in supervisory roles are encouraged to take 12 credit hours of the health management concentration course work. Students may elect to combine these two concentrations to equal 12 credit hours total.
