RA students are required to complete a minimum of 44 SC for the program. Imaging of Special Populations (RISP 4381), or its equivalent, is a prerequisite course from the undergraduate professional curriculum. Students who have not completed RISP 4381 or its equivalent prior to being accepted into the RA program must complete the graduate level Imaging of Special Populations course (MISR 5381) as part of the RA degree plan. Other recommended, but not required, undergraduate courses are Advanced Patient Care (RISP 4382), Current Issues in Health Care (RISP 4394), Managerial Leadership (RISP 4398), and Research in Radiologic Sciences (RISP 4399).
The program is designed to be completed in five consecutive semesters on a full time basis. A flexible degree plan starting in any semester and extending the program up to a maximum of nine semesters may be arranged, resources permitting; however, the five required clinical internship courses must be completed consecutively.
