Program Description

Based on the American Society of Radiologic Technologists B.S.R.S. core curriculum, this program expands on areas found in entry-level radiography curriculum, such as critical thinking, human diversity, research methodology, leadership, and communication skills.

As the radiography profession continues to require higher education credentials, we can help you grow within the profession. Moreover, as healthcare as a whole becomes more dependent on interdisciplinary teams, ECPI University can also help you go beyond the scope of your initial training to provide assistance to all allied health professionals in order to provide optimum patient care.

Possible Career Track

Earning a B.S.R.S. can allow you to pursue your master’s degree and become a Radiological Assistant (RA). Radiologist assistants are experienced, registered radiographers who have obtained additional education and certification that qualify them to serve as radiologist extenders. They work under the supervision of a radiologist to provide patient care in the diagnostic imaging environment. 



Upon completion of the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences program, you could be prepared to:

  • Demonstrate problem-solving/critical-thinking skills that provide ethical and safe patient care in all areas of radiology, including advanced modalities.
  • Perform in the role of supervisor/manager for a radiology department using leadership skills in the areas of communication, quality management, and team building while maintaining quality of care and safe practices.
  • Analyze the relationships between major stakeholders in the U.S. healthcare delivery system and individual caregiver responsibility to provide optimum patient care.
  • Apply principles of diversity, cultural competencies, and health literacy to professional practice.
  • Professionally communicate with diverse groups of people including patients, peers, administrators, and health professions to ensure patient safety and quality radiographic care.
  • Practice a holistic, professional, and ethical approach to health care.
