If it is a Radiologic Science course, then our department will evaluate the course and decide how it will transfer (Transfer Policy). If it is a University course then the Registrar’s office evaluates the credits ((208) 426-4249). If you want to know if a course will transfer from your current institution, please contact the Registrar’s Office https://www.boisestate.edu/registrar/.
The clinically based medical imaging programs, Radiography, CT, MRI and Sonography, limit program enrollment based on clinical education opportunities available at local hospitals, imaging centers and medical clinics. Students spend a significant portion of their program education in the clinical setting perfecting their skills.
Due to the limited number of available clinical sites the Radiography Program has a competitive admission process. Prerequisite GPA and a scored interview are used to select program participants. It is important to meet with an advisor prior to applying to the program.
We strongly encourage prospective applicants to visit a radiography department and observe radiographers in action.
A good resource to learn more about many of the health professions is the American Medical Association Health Professions Career and Education Directory. It is available at most libraries and gives detailed information about several occupations, educational programs and accrediting agencies.
Once you have found programs that you are interested in, some questions that you may ask as you investigate their educational offerings:
What I’m understanding from the Boise State website is that all students go through the Radiography Program and become certified to work as a technologist and then if they want to specialize as say a Sonographer, they need to go for an additional year of training. Is that correct?
A. Yes, that is correct. Our program is a one plus 2 plus 1 program. One year of prerequisites, two year professional radiographer program to finish the BS degree.
Every university /college has their own process to grant a degree.
If you had the prerequisites completed and would be accepted the first year, it would be two years with a summer included for the B.S. degree and then an additional year if your were accepted into the sonography program or MRI program and another semester for the CT program.
You would graduate with a B.S. and then if you chose to continue you would receive another B.S.
