Philosophy

The global trend for radiography practice in University-based training is due to great advances in the sophistication and diversity of medical imaging equipment as well as the scientific knowledge, its application and expertise required for the practice of radiography.

The training in Radiography will prepare graduates to become confident members of healthcare teams and competent supervisors of laboratories and other clinical settings.

Programme Objectives

    The program is designed to fulfill the following objectives:

  • To produce Radiographers with relevant practical and technological competence in the practice of radiography at the primary, secondary and tertiary levels of health-care delivery.

  • To produce radiographers who can assume professional positions involving the use of the most complex radio-diagnostic equipment and procedures.

  • To produce professionals with a high level of proficiency in conventional radiography and with a good working knowledge of other imaging modalities including Therapeutic Radiography.

  • To produce professionals who will be eligible for postgraduate studies, research and development.
