Philosophy of the Medical Radiography Program

It is the program’s philosophy that to develop professional, competent and compassionate medical radiographers requires a quality education founded on a well-rounded curriculum which includes technical skills, critical thinking, and ethical and responsible behavior.


The program is competency based and follows the American Society of Radiologic Technologists Curriculum Guide. Graduates are eligible to apply to take the national American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification which is accepted in all states. Most states require radiologic technologists to be licensed by that state. In Utah, graduates who have passed the national certification exam may apply for licensure through the Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing.
