Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science offers the following undergraduate and certificate programs:
Associate of Science in Radiography
The Radiologic Technology program is designed to prepare individuals for employment as a Radiologic Technologist. The primary role of a Radiologic Technologist is to operate imaging equipment and perform technical procedures to produce x-ray studies for the diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease.
Professional competence requires a Radiologic Technologist to apply knowledge of anatomy, physiology, positioning, radiographic techniques, patient care, and radiation protection to produce images of the body. Radiologic technologist’s must exercise independent judgment in the performance of imaging procedures and be able to communicate effectively with patients, other health professionals, and the public. Duties include maintaining patient records, image processing, assisting the radiologist in the performance of procedures and initiating basic life support techniques as necessary.
Bachelor of Science, Biomedical Sciences<
The Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Biomedical Sciences prepares students for entry into graduate and professional programs in medicine, osteopathic, podiatry, optometry, physical therapy, physician assistant, pharmacy or dentistry. In addition, the BS program prepares students for masters and doctoral programs, scientific research, and employment in biomedical laboratories and/or biotech companies. The program offers a multidisciplinary study of health and diseases, and particularly the biological and molecular sciences that constitute the foundation of modern medicine.
Required coursework and laboratory training are provided by the program for graduate and professional school admission. The BS program provides preparation for professional and graduate school examinations and access to relevant extracurricular activities such as community service and research opportunities with experienced faculty mentors.
Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Pre-Medicine
