Radiologic Technology Programs
Program Director’s Message
Welcome to our Radiologic Technology Program at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, College of Science and Health! CDU offers a 21-month program in radiologic technology, combining didactic instruction with practical experience. This provides a sound foundation on which to build a career. Student radiographers are educated in the art and science of using radiation to provide images of tissues, organs, bones and blood vessels of the human body. Our program offers the unique opportunity to experience all facets of radiology imaging. The core program revolves around clinical and didactic training. Students train to become an integral part of the radiology department team for imaging and patient care. Our students are incorporated into all aspects of the radiology department.
The clinical practice includes inpatient and outpatient-based imaging which gives the perspective of a busy private practice and hospital workload all the while experiencing the spectrum of modalities and specialties during a typical day. Your education at CDU will afford the ability to enter any imaging facility as an entry-level productive member of the team.
Students are always at the forefront with a dedicated core curriculum and real-world teaching offering the best of both worlds.
The students, staff and radiologists form a unique family and partnership of camaraderie and respect, functioning together to provide the best patient care and educational experience possible. CDU is truly a one-of-a-kind institution.
