The department of radiological sciences offer a Bachelor of Science in radiological sciences program. The program was approved by the Ministry of higher education in 2008 and student admission began in 2009. Most of our graduates will join hospitals as radiological technologist; others may continue to pursue their post graduate studies as well as other careers e.g. radiation protection officer and PACS administrators. It is a four-year taught program in the University plus a year of internship training in clinical setting. The first year of academic study is a preparatory year and from the 2nd to 4th years are studies within the department. Overall, the study plan consists of theoretical and practical sessions. Successful completion of all credit hours leads to the bachelor’s degree. The internship year is a 48-week full-time work in at least two hospitals.
There are two highly distinguishable features in our curriculum; the balance of theoretical and practical courses over the years and the integration of computer science into an otherwise conventional radiological science program. The number of theoretical courses is at maximum at the beginning and it decreases gradually over the years while the number of practical courses reverses this trend. The aim is to provide the students a solid foundation of knowledge upon which their skill can be based. Their skill is further honed and polished during their internship year.
