Radiography

If you love the technical side of the medical field, then a degree in radiography could be the right fit for you. Radiographers spend most of their time capturing medical images utilizing ionizing radiation to create images that assist in diagnosing patients.  Radiographers work in departments using modern radiographic and fluoroscopic equipment.  They may specialize in general vascular, cardiovascular, along with Magnetic Resonance Imagining (MRI), Computed technology (CT), and Nuclear Medicine Technology to create images that assist in diagnosing patients. 

Two years of course work at Henderson State followed by two years at Baptist Health College in Little Rock will give you a bachelor's degree in this field. As a radiography major, you will be well prepared for the academic classes and clinical experiences you will see at Baptist Health.

Upon completion of the final year of study at Baptist, graduates are eligible to apply for and sit for the ARRT national certification examination.

Henderson State's excellent faculty members will be there to guide and assist you throughout your first two years at Henderson where you will complete your pre-professional course work. After the two years you will be able to apply for the radiography program at Baptist Health College in Little Rock.  Once accepted into the radiography program their excellent faculty will direct you through the professional curriculum.

After you have completed the program, you will have the experience and training you need to be successful in this field.  Radiographers have many career opportunities that include practicing in hospitals, clinics, surgery centers, along with education and sales.
