Through courses taught on the main campus and clinical experiences in area radiography departments, Austin Peay State University’s radiography program prepares students to gather diagnostic images through procedures such as chest x-rays, skeletal images and occasionally CT imaging. Whether you are interested in working with patients or pursuing a career as a specialist or salesperson within the industry, APSU’s program will provide you with the knowledge, skills and abilities employers are seeking.
The mission of the Radiologic Technology Program is to provide training in the field of imaging science. The goal of the program will be to fulfill the needs of healthcare providers in the community and surrounding regions. Serving people by being a provider requires critical thinking and technical skills to offer the best possible care. To prepare the students to meet these requirements, they are provided with various levels of training. This training includes theory, clinical practice, didactic learning, laboratory testing, and competency testing in the clinical setting. Upon successful completion of the program, graduating students will be prepared to meet the requirements for an entry-level position in radiology.
