Radiographers have an important role in the treatment of the ill and injured. It’s their responsibility to ensure that the diagnostic images they produce are of the highest quality so that members of the medical team can make accurate diagnoses and treat patients accordingly. In this program, you’ll learn the effect of radiation on the body, how to position patients correctly, determine the proper settings for optimum exposures, and how to protect yourself and your patient from the effects of radiation. Core classes are taught in classroom and laboratory settings with a heavy emphasis on clinical experience in a healthcare setting. Classes are offered in traditional, online, and blended formats.
Program-specific courses are held in the Health Science Center, a shared facility located a few blocks from the La Crosse main campus. Check our maps page for specific location information.
