Consistent with the mission of Wharton County Junior College, the Radiography Program will graduate students with an Associate of Applied Science. The program will afford the opportunity for individual growth, application of knowledge, and articulation to a baccalaureate degree program in the pursuit of continuous knowledge. Upon graduation from the program, the student will have the clinical, problem-solving, and communication skills equal to that of an entry-level radiologic technologist able to meet the needs of our community.
In fulfilling our mission statement, at the end of our program, students will:
- Be clinically prepared to practice as entry-level radiographers
- Be able to identify professional development and life-ling learning opportunities
in radiologic science
- Be able to demonstrate communication skills both orally and written
- Be able to apply critical thinking and problem solving skills in a clinical setting
In fulfilling our mission statement the program will graduate an adequate amount of students to meet the needs of our community.
