Overview 

The Department of Radiological Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science in Radiological Sciences Program. The Ministry of Higher Education approved the program in 2008; student admission began in 2009. Most graduates pursue careers as radiological technologists, while others opt for postgraduate studies or diverse roles such as radiation protection officers and PACS administrators. The program spans four academic years, followed by a year of internship training in clinical settings.  

The first year serves as a preparatory foundation, and subsequent years are within the department, focusing on a balanced blend of theoretical and practical sessions. The study plans consist of strategic increases in practical courses while decreasing theoretical courses, ensuring students build a knowledge foundation before honing their skills during a 48-week full-time internship in at least two hospitals. 

Two notable features in our curriculum: a deliberate balance between theoretical and practical courses and infusion of computer science into a traditionally structured radiological science program.  

In 2022-2023, we started a 2 year M.Sc. in Radiological Sciences with three tracks: 1. Health Physics and Radiation Protection, 2. Medical Diagnostic Imaging, and 3. Radiotherapy and Dosimetry.

I’m Nawaf Alyami, a graduate of the radiological science class of 2021. It was a sincere acknowledgment and gratitude to be among the luckiest students who graduated from the radiology program. Under astonishing, outstanding faculty, they yield the knowledge I need and show me the perfect way to practice it. In addition, I took advantage of what I had learned, which served me well in my career as a radiology professional. I took the pleasure of being the leader of my 2018 batch for two years, and we were glad to assist each other as a group. Our collaborative spirit proved invaluable, and we supported each other throughout our academic internship; I exploited every chance to practice and get supervised by my senior. I learned how stressful, challenging, and accurate my role in radiology is to the patient and the examination. I realized how important it is to be in such a role and how to be distinguished.
