The Department of Radiation Sciences welcomes you! We offer B.S. in Clinical Radiation Sciences with concentrations in Nuclear Medicine Technology, Radiation Therapy, Radiography, and Diagnostic Medical Sonography. As Virginia's only B.S. program with concentrations specific to Radiography, Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Medical Sonography plus the only Nuclear Medicine program in central Virginia, you have the opportunity to prepare for the technical and professional demands of the 21st century.

Curricula for each concentration include both theoretical and practical course work and substantial clinical experience in a variety of high-quality health care settings. Our entry level programs are fully accredited (i.e., JRCERT for Radiation Therapy and Radiography; the JRCNMT for Nuclear Medicine, and the JRDMS for Diagnostic Medical Sonography) and meet high national standards. Graduates from our programs are eligible for national certification exams in their discipline. We will seek programmatic accreditation for the Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

Our facility provides multimedia classrooms, a fully energized radiographic and fluoroscopic lab, a VERT radiation therapy simulation unit, radiation therapy treatment planning system, dual head nuclear medicine gamma camera, Philiips sonography units, and Fuji computed radiography (digital) imaging equipment.  Equally impressive are the department who have expertise and experience in a wide range of specialties within the radiation sciences and hold numerous leadership positions in the various professional societies.

If you are committed to helping people in a health care setting along with an interest in technologically advanced equipment, the radiation sciences may be the career for you.
