Radiography - Advanced Specialties

  • Radiologic Imaging Modalities (RIM) Certificate.
  • Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Sciences Radiologic Imaging Modalities (BS MIS RIM)
  • Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences (BSHS) Imaging Track
Advanced practices in Radiography include Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance and Mammography.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2014-24 Edition Employment is projected to grow faster than average; those with knowledge of more than one diagnostic imaging procedure will have the best employment opportunities.

Further educational advancement as a radiologic technologist can open many career opportunities such as in specialized clinical areas as Mammography, CT, MRI and others. It can lead you to become and educator, researcher and/or manager of an imaging department.

The Radiography – Advanced Specialties programs were designed to enhance the professional development of ARRT certified Diagnostic Radiographers by providing students with the ability to acquire knowledge and skills necessary for advanced practice. The combination of a strong academic curriculum and intensive clinical training provides programs, which is comprehensive in their method of training. The program courses are offered via distance learning. Clinical requirements can be fulfilled at a Rutgers-SHP facility or at another facility pending approval of a clinical contract.
