Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences

Undergraduate Preparation for Degree Programs Pre-Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences

All of the general education courses required to become a radiographer, sonographer, nuclear medicine technologist, and radiation therapist may be completed at OSU.  To become registered in any of these professions, students must be accepted and transfer to an accredited program in radiologic technology. OSU students planning to complete all their education in Oklahoma have the following choices:

  • Two year associate degree (Radiography only): Bacone College, Rose State College, Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Sayre, Tulsa Community College
  • Four year baccalaureate degree: University of Oklahoma College of Allied Health

 
PRE-MEDICAL IMAGING AND RADIATION SCIENCES REQUIREMENTS & ADVISEMENT WORKSHEET
University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center

The advisement worksheet was prepared for OSU students planning to complete their education at the University of Oklahoma, and receive the B.S. degree in Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences.  Students planning to major in radiography, sonography, nuclear medicine technology, and radiation therapy complete the same prerequisite courses prior to admission.

ADVISEMENT AT OSU:  Any student, including freshmen, planning to enter a health professions program should call 405-744-9965 or come by the Pre-Health Advisng Office, located in room 213 Life Sciences East to schedule an appointment.  All incoming students should consider enrolling in UNIV 2511, Introduction to Health Careers, offered each fall semester.

ELECTIVES:  Make up the balance of hours needed to equal 64 hours.

GRADEPOINT REQUIREMENT:  Students must have at least a 2.5 GPA in all college work attempted and have earned a "C" or better in required courses.  Average overall and sciences GPA's for successful applicants were 3.5.

SELECTION OF MAJOR: It should be emphasized that "Pre-Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences" is not a major. It simply means that the student is meeting requirements for admission to a Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences program. Thus, in addition to satisfying these requirements, the student should be working toward a baccalaureate degree in some discipline. In the College of Arts and Sciences, incoming freshmen are "undelcared" majors until after their first semester (12 hours). During this time, the student will have an advisor assigned in room 213 Life Sciences East to help them with enrollment and exploration of a major. There is no recommended major for Pre-Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences students. Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences programs encourage a broad general curriculum in the social sciences and humanities in addition to a high level of competence in the physical and biological sciences. Good communication skills are also important. Beyond this, the best advice for studetns is to select a major in a discipline that will offer satisfying challenges and provides a viable alternative to Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences if they are not admitted.
