Historical Account

The RAD program at CDU is in the College of Science and Health. The RAD AS degree is a 21 month, 5-semester program, with 84 required credit hours. It is a competency-based curriculum ideally designed for working adults, currently with 51 students. Eugene Hasson, MS, RT(R) is the 3rd director in the history of the program. There are 2.5 full time faculty in the program. The program started in 1971 as a hospital based program with the degree granted from Compton College. After the completion of the University, the program moved from CCC to the CDU campus. In August 2015, the Associate of Science Radiologic Technology (RADTECH) program enrolled its 44th student cohort. This is the oldest continuously functioning and fully accredited professional program in the College of Science and Health (COSH), and the second oldest CDU program after the Medical Education (MD) program in the College of Medicine (COM). Such longevity reflects the persistent need for imaging professionals. The RADTECH program at CDU has a long, proud history of supporting the university’s mission and meeting the needs of healthcare organizations in underserved areas, by providing competent and compassionate imaging technologists who are committed to and trained in a context of community service.
