The Radiation Sciences, BS Program at Loma Linda University provides a quality educational experience focused on the whole person. The program prepares students to be registry-eligible, entry-level radiographers equipped with the knowledge, skills, values, attitudes, and behaviors appropriate for providing excellent patient care and safely managing radiation exposure.
Our vision is to be known by our students, alumni, clinical instructors, faculty, professional community, and staff as the Medical Radiography Program of choice. Additionally, we want the program experience to be known as "a close family" that is exciting, challenging transforming and fun.
We will accomplish our mission and vision by setting and achieving high standards of excellence in professional behavior, academic and clinical education, customer service, and collaborative success, in addition to living to the core values of Loma Linda University: integrity, compassion, excellence, purity/self-control, humility, justice, and freedom.
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
The LLU Medical Radiography program stands out because of its family environment, caring faculty, low student-to-faculty ratio, and emphasis on professionalism, service learning, interprofessional education, values development, transformation, and the whole person. The bar is set high in this program, and the students who engage in all that the program offers are the ones who experience the highest student success.
Service learning is built into the Medical Radiography program. Each student will complete 24 hours of service learning within their first and second year of the program. The motto of the School of Allied Health Professions is "To Lead, To Heal, To Service," so it is no wonder that service--whether local or international--is part of our curriculum. Students also have opportunities to serve on international mission trips.
Interprofessional education is all about collaboration--to build friendships, trust, and respect--between all of the different health care specialties. Second year medical radiography students attend an interprofessional lab where they roll-play scenarios with medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, behavioral health, and allied health students in order to grow in their ability to work on the health care team.
Applicants are required to complete a background check and possess a current Health Care Provider CPR card offered by the American Heart Association. To remain in the program students must maintain a 2.5 GPA, pass three program milestones, pass a mock board exam, and adhere to the Program’s professional code of conduct. Students at some clinical sites may need a drug test.
